Recycled Art Workshop
We reuse and upcycle discarded items and objects, including (washed/wiped) food packaging, household items, textiles, packaging material and unwanted advertising.
This is essentially a sculpture and craft workshop, and some basic construction skills or knowledge is preferable, but not essential.
Green Material Workshop
As part of this workshop the participants are guided in making their own art materials, such as glue, paint, paper and/or ink. An artwork is created utilizing the materials, and each participant takes their self-made materials home, along with information or a guide on where to find and source the base materials to create their own art materials at home.
The next Green Material workshop is planned for February 2013, and facilitated by Janet Botes & Nicolle Marais
Land Art Sessions
Join in the fun, come and relax, connect to nature. We use natural found materials such as rocks, sand, twigs and leaves to create shapes, images and symbols in the landscape. Bring a camera, take a photograph, as your artwork will be dismantled, blown away and washed away by natural elements.
Adult sessions, as well as kids sessions, in the forest and on the beach.
The next land art session are planned for December 2012. Sign up on the right to receive updates and the confirmed date and time. This session will be free, but places are limited - booking essential
