Well, all good things must come to an end... This was our last day of hosting the fabulous Ann Weber, and a great day it was. As always, the Tinkering Studio was packed and filled to capacity. Many great things were created, and lots of discarded cardboard was up-cycled in creative ways.
Busy times in the Tinkering Studio.
The most popular thing to make was a headband, that could be variously decorated. Also, it was within the abilities of even the smallest kids.
A baseball hat was a slightly more ambitious project.
Michael made some nice abstract art.
This father and son collaborated on the largest piece that happened in these three days: a great big horse. And at the end, they took it home!
Ann putting the last staple on her piece! This is the first piece entirely created, from start to finish, in the Tinkering Studio by an artist in residence.
Carolyn came back to upgrade her stool. The new version works with a top on, and easily supports a full grown adult.
We've also seen quite a few purses, variously decorated. Ann was specific in requesting that no decoration implements (such as markers and pencils) be part of the workshop, which focused the visitors on making, instead of drawing.
A cardboard shoe!
A fencing mask.
Another very popular artifact was the visitor's own name.
