“we are all ‘in this together’ as a shifting set of materials without privilege over each other.” (Attala 2019)
In this 2.5-hour workshop, you will learn the basics of paper-making and how to use pulp to form 3D objects. We will focus on repurposing and using found materials to create imagined creatures. This playful workshop offers the opportunity to reflect on how the first piece of paper was created from recycling materials, specifically discarded ropes and fishing nets. At the same time it challenges participants to speculate on a future that brings together debris and nature, in this case through the creation of imagined creatures.
Supplies: Tools and recycled paper pulp will be provided. Participants are invited to bring found objects or items from the recycle bin to build a structure/armature to hold their pulp and construct off of.
Date: Friday, March 31, 11 am to 1:30 pm
Location: Hosted by MaSH LAB (Matter and Sustainable Hybridity Lab) EV 10.615.
