Bellingham sculpture artist Thor Myhre will facilitate a class at the Loomis Hall Gallery on Martin Street in Blaine this weekend.

The class, Junk Has Soul, is scheduled from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, February  20, at Loomis Hall, 288 Martin Street and will feature lessons in sculpting with found objects. Students will use common materials and hand tools to create unique works of art. They will learn innovative ways of integrating and attaching formerly unrelated items, making new discoveries about themselves and the world around them. 

Students will learn about great resources for future projects and walk away with a new found sense of the beauty in everyday junk. 

The class is open to ages 7 to adult. A $75 fee includes materials. Register by calling 360/676-1042 or emailing Myhre at
