Top 5 Things You Will Learn From a Master Class with Michael Yurkovic

February 11, 2016

 

MID CENTURY MODERN DESIGN AND THEORY

Michael’s lifelong love of art and design together with his impressive technical and visionary skills provided a natural segue from industrial design into the world of fine scale miniatures. He draws inspiration from classic MCM designers including Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen and Michael’s portfolio includes furniture, accessories and vignettes that typify the styles of MCM.  Learn more about these classic designers from Michael and how they have impacted the world of miniatures. 

 

 

FINISHING TIPS AND DESIGN TECHNIQUES

Students in Michael's class will be provided with a “box” along with an assortment of decorative materials to choose from.  You'll  learn finishing tips and design techniques from the period along with interior color and composition theory. The sides of the box will be covered with choice of coordinating fabric wall panels and we’ll finish the floors with hardwood, paint or tile.

 

HOW TO MAKE AND LIGHT A VERY COOL  WORKING CHANDELIER

Students will have a choice of hanging ceiling fixture from a variety of designs and materials.  You'll be learning how to wire and connect the fixture to a battery pack and supplied 9v battery.

HOW TO FURNISH AND ACCESSORIZE YOUR NEW SHADOW BOX

Your finished shadow box will measure 9” tall by 7” wide by 3” deep and may be placed on a table-top or hung on a wall.   An assortment of Michael's scale works and accessories, including his signature chairs, will be availble to students who take the class along with a 20% discount for any one item purchased from the collection.
