Bring your ManneqART 2017 Competition ideas and materials to the ManneqART Museum and we’ll work with you to get your project off on the right foot (or left foot, if you prefer!!). Even if you are not entering the 2017 ManneqArt Competition, this is still a great workshop to learn some new craft skills and have a great day of artful fun.
This workshop is designed to accomplish two amazingly creative things: First, you’ll learn how to make an armature, or structure out of wire, masking tape and aluminum foil. An armature is the “foundation” of any sculptural artwork and building it right saves time and avoids problems in the future. Second, you will create a beautiful tiara or crown that you can wear or display as a beautiful art piece. Who doesn’t love a tiara? We will be using beautiful ribbons, silks, lace and fibers generously donated by ManneqART founder and fashion designer Lee Andersen, and lots of silk flowers and embellishments to adorn your tiara. Consider bringing some old costume jewelry or a favorite trinket to personalize your artwork. Maybe you’ll be inspired to enter ManneqART or Sandy Spring Museum’s Inner Light competition.

Instructors: Patti Euler, owner, The Queen’s Ink, Lee Andersen, ManneqART founder.
Cost: $65, Bring a light lunch with you. Drinks and light snacks will be provided.
