I went with Martha to a junk figure workshop and made these. This was, by far, one of my more enjoyable Saturdays. You get down on the floor and sift through piles and piles of junk, picking out what appeals to you, then stand at a table equipped with everything you need to make these figures.
When lunch break was announced, no one took it. We ate what we brought as well as the teacher's offerings, and continued. That's how involved you get!
What I really appreciate about this workshop was stretching myself to go beyond the usual, the known, what works, to "see" deeper, beyond the façade, and Do Something Different!
