A hands-on workshop led by artist and sculptor Steve Gerberich
Fresh from Gerbo’s garage: FLAPPETS! Pull a string, Zing! FLAP goes the tails, fins, and wings! Choose to build one of many whimsical animal species – a Sockwhale, Glovebird, or even a butterfly. This newly developed inquiry-based workshop combines common materials and employs simple mechanical interactions. A very involved workshop in which participants will be in charge of their own drilling, jig sawing, hot gluing, knot tying, screwing, rigging, painting and more. And with all of this activity comes experience with concepts such as pivot points, ratios, expression, structure, balance, action, and gravity.
