Stone Carving - Bird Wings (P22)

Instructor: Sean Hunter Williams

In this weekend workshop you'll examine the morphology of bird wings and how the underlying forms influence their function, as well as the shapes of individual feathers that compose the different wing formations. You'll leave with a better understanding of layering, tucking and folding of forms and techniques to achieve these effects in stone.  This class meets in-person in AVA's Sculptural Studies Building.
