Event Series Event Series (See All)

In this workshop we use the contents of your trash to make sculpture. Materials like junk mail, food containers, packaging of any sort become the building blocks of an animal of your choosing. We will use a variety of building methods that emphasize speed: tape, hot glue, string. Bring images of animals, some art supplies, and your trash!

Suggested Supplies:

  • Tape
  • Hot Glue
  • String
  • Images of animals
  • Any other art supplies you’d like to use
  • Your Trash (Junk mail, food container, packaging, or whatever you think you can use to make an animal.)
