The Keith Lo Bue Workshop

The Keith Lo Bue workshop was in San Diego at The Shepardess. It was a very quaint little town center with lush bougainvillea and other exotic foliage.

The workshop itself was fantastic. I learned so much from the super talent. An incredible teacher, lovely person with humor and personality. Very thorough and attentive to all of us.

I met a lot of like minded spirits which made the learning experience even more fun.

We started out by playing with all the junk, I mean found objects we brought and were told to integrate our objects using no glue, easier said than done and a challenge for alllllll. Here is one of the modest things I created:

The goal really wasn’t to create a finished piece but to play with our disparate parts and integrate them by applying different attachment techniques as we learned all the ins and outs of drilling, rotary tools, patinas, metal, glass, wood, wire etc.

We also learned how to weather and distress wood which I incorporated into this little assemblage:

I hope to apply the things I learned which were many) to my figurative type efforts. Keith’s work in person is absolutely phenomenal, exquisite craftsmanship and just gorgeous sculptural quality. TWO thumbs way uppppp!

    I emailed Keith about two years ago asking him to let me know when he would be teaching in the US and that is how I found out about the workshop.  You could email him and ask if he will be teaching in Australia!
