Sculptural Collage – Working with Found Materials

This workshop will be based on re-use and found objects. I will discuss how I use found media like books, cassette tapes and maps and alter them to become new works of art. Attendees will bring in items or images of interest that they want to transform and we will work with the materials and gather more. We consider the original intentions of the material, the meanings and assumptions the material and its uses possess, its current use value and possible ways to create something new, either functional, pictoral or purely sculptural, that brings new meaning to the old material.
