Robot Riot

More workshop fun here at my home. The robots were rioting and nuts and bolts were flying as three dollmakers and one graphic designer learned some new skills in metal working taught by our patient instructor Janette Schuster. This lovely lady was created by Janette from lamp parts and a vintage nut tin.
More inspiration from our teacher. Mr. Candy Man

It's amazing what you can do with a tin can and some other found objects.

But I will tell you that it is not as easy as you might think. We all found out that working with unusual found objects, slippery and sharp metal parts and tiny little screws and washers takes practice and patience!

Much fun was had by all.

Here are some of our robots... still unfinished but bursting with personality!
