This page displays an example of a workshop activity which can be undertaken at events and exhibitions as apart of the Obscene beasts and corpses project.

The workshop enables participants to work with the artist to make small figures using a simple pole lathe.

The pole lathe enables the participant to use a cutting tool and foot-power to form simple spindle shapes out of wood.

These figurines can include additional arms and accessories using the same technique.

The models can then be painted or left as wood and displayed on a simple stand.
