Enjoy a creative class where you’ll learn to design and cut out a sugar skull from remnant sheet material before decorating it to match your style using paints, cogs and scrap metal parts.
The Salvage Sister has been creating art with scrap materials for many years and has even shown people how they can do this and where they can find the materials to do so on many TV shows from ‘Fill Your House for Free’ on C4 with Kirsty Allsopp to ‘Get the Builders in’ on BBC1.
She has learnt all the tricks of the trade and now she’s opening up this creative opportunity of a life time to you!
You will learn how to make your very own savage art sugar skull using a jigsaw, drill and other power tools listed below.
You’ll go home with the artwork you make and the skills to repeat it over and over again!
You can choose to make customisations to your sugar skull for instance; change the colours with paints, and use the other scrap cogs, metal and materials provided to create something truly original you can be proud of.
If you are a total newbie to woodworking and power tools why not try our ‘Power tools for Beginners‘ class first?
You can now purchase gift cards for the amount of your choosing which the receiver can put towards any Salvage Sister product or workshop! Give the unique gift of creativity to your loved ones, to find out more click here!
