Demonstration by Sue McLearie Wire Sculptures

Today Virginia Water Art Society were treated to a very different demonstration by Sue McLearie who came to share with us the making of animal sculptures using wire and paper.  We all found the demonstration very interesting and were very tempted to go home and try for ourselves,  The animals that Sue has produced were very well constructed and would give lost of room for artistic license when trying them out for ourselves   A very entertaining evening was had by all the members who attended.
