Wire Tree Sculpting Classes

Local artist Carol Mickey is teaching wire tree sculpting classes to adults and kids (ages 10-16) this year at LGNC. Since she created her first sculpture as a child, Carol has perfected the skill of twisting mundane metal wire into amazingly life-like trees in miniature. In Carol’s classes, you will sculpt your own wire trees from roots to crown, taking inspiration from the willows, maples, and other species around the Osprey House. Carol teaches personalized classes at varying levels of difficulty.

“Trees are a sign of strength and wisdom,” Carol says. By sharing her craft, Carol hopes to inspire new artists to create wire trees, an art form that she believes can uniquely display “all of nature’s glory in one piece.” To learn more about Carol and her art, please visit her website at www.onlytrees.us.

About the instructor – Stacy Hein 14089089_10207158539147378_4830331076984296489_n
Stacy discovered yoga in 2009, somewhat accidentally, while taking dance classes at a small studio. She took a few classes there and found that yoga was a natural progression from her love of dance. She began exploring the practice through DVDs and other classes in the area, but it wasn’t until 2014 that she began a regular practice. Within about one year, she began researching teacher trainings, knowing that she wanted to deepen her practice and share the benefits of yoga with others. She chose to pursue her 200 hour certification with Erica McHugh at Emmaus Yoga.

Also a dance fitness instructor, freelance writer, and writing tutor—Stacy brings a background of both group instruction and one-on-one teaching experience to her classes. Her teaching style is a union of her passion for words and her love of the discipline, rhythm and meditation of yoga. Students can expect to encounter a blend of poetry and movement in her classes that is carefully designed to inspire and motivate—both on and off the mat.
