Class 3: Working With Worbla
Date and Time: August 13, 2014 from 6pm-9pm
Location: The Leonardo (209 E 500 S, Salt Lake City, UT 84111)
For everybody that ran around the house as a kid pretending to be a superhero, Salt Lake Comic Con has a new way to not only act the part, but to look the part as well. Salt Lake Comic Con and The Leonardo are partnering to co-sponsor a series of monthly Cosplay Do-It-Yourself Workshops to teach fans how to build their own costumes.
Working With Worbla
The goal of this 3 hour hands-on workshop is to introduce students to how Worbla, a thermoplastic material, is handled and used in a creative, cosplay-specific manner. The class will demonstrate pattern making, safe handling of tools and materials, and assembly of an arm cuff. Students will be given enough materials to build the demonstrated piece, and decorate or embellish it.
Students are welcome to bring their own Worbla if they are working on a project that requires a larger piece. We will provide needed materials, but we suggest bringing:
- Heat Gun (If you plan on working with Worbla in the future, a heat gun is an absolute necessity. We will have some to share, but buying one beforehand is a great option. We will also have our heat guns available for purchase at a discount after the class.)
- Sketch Pad and pencil
- Ideas! What sort of cuff or bracelet are you looking to make? Bold? Swirly? Pre-planning goes a long way.
- Thin cotton dish towel or long sleeve shirt, or tolerance to heat. Worbla can get pretty warm on bare skin.
A Word of Warning:
We are working with heat and scissors next to skin. Burns and cuts may occur if not careful. Salt Lake Comic Con, The Leonardo, or anyone involved in putting on this event are not liable for any injuries incurred. The minimum age for this class is 16 years old.
