Building with Found Materials
Ever wondered-how to I incorporate part of an old car into a new desk?-which glue will join marbles to street signs?-how to join inflatable toys to each other? This class may be for you. From DIY/home repair to creating contemporary artwork, creative reuse and resourcing of otherwise disused materials is a practical skill. Class will begin investigation by collaborative construction of a sculpture-piece from found materials (provided by participants), in order to learn the basics of cutting and fastening various materials– wood, plastics, metal, glass, cardboard, concrete, etc. We will cover basic safety, hand tool and power tool use. In additional sessions, students are encouraged to bring their own project for discussion and problem-solving.
Address will be emailed upon registration.
