Carved polystyrene is literally and figuratively at the core of Sherri Warner Hunter’s concrete sculptures and public art installations.  Join Sherri to experiment with hot and cold carving techniques utilized in her studio. Learn how to incorporate armature and installation systems to expand this process for large scale works.
