Make Art from Recycled Materials
During this hour long event you will learn a number of ways of making art from recycled materials at home. You will investigate creative journeys through use of newspaper, magazines and cardboard and be inspired to develop your own ideas. You will explore ways to play with materials and learn basic techniques including paper weaving.
Beginners are more than welcome and the emphasis is very much on the process and not necessarily the product. The aim of the workshop is build confidence and motivation and to offer an creative outlet that can be further explored or developed in your own time. You will also of created a couple of interesting outcomes. After taking part you will definitely think twice about discarding any so called rubbish!
