The second class is all about Electroforming Organic Material. I will cover electroforming basic plant material, flowers, leaves, and pods; along with critters (a dead lizard), feathers, and shells. The class project will be whatever organic material you want to use — you will be providing your own dead lizard and other organic material.
Note: Uses both the Zoom and the Facebook platforms. Students will need a free Facebook account.
How the Classes Work:
Classes will be presented in a Zoom format.
Each class will have its own FaceBook Classroom with videos and instruction available at any time — for as long as Facebook is willing to host the page. Lessons only on this page.
A FaceBook Question and Answer Group Page – where we will all interact for 30 days. The page will be archived, and available to view.
Admission to Terry Henry’s Facebook Student Gallery Group for you to share your creations.
