These artful “Junk Birds” began with a challenge I took part in from the NBC “Making It” show during Covid.
The first challenge was to make something using stuff from your junk drawer. I decided to create a bird sculpture using toothpicks, popsicle sticks, dice, keys, rubber bands and other “junk.” Nick Offerman and Amy Poehler, hosts of the show, would do a video about the winners and my bird got a shout out from Nick! Happy dance!
That started my artful junk bird obsession. As I made more birds and posted them, friends were asking me how to make them. So that led to the creation of this course! I wanted to share with you, all of the inspiration, supplies and techniques that I use when I add to my flock of bird assemblages.
You will learn how I go about sculpting, curating and constructing these one of a kind art pieces. The process is so fun and for any skill level. You just have to have “JUNK.” You will see that the possibilities are endless. And maybe, you will catch my bird obsession and start to create your own flock. They are wonderful to display and would make a treasured, memorable gift for a loved one!
