April 4 and 5, 2014 (Friday 4–8 pm, Saturday 3–7 pm)
The first day we will be making molds for our new pendant sculptures using wire and scrap plastic, and cover them with colourful cellulose mixtures made of waste paper and cardboard. The second day, when the cellulose mixtures are dry, we will be printing on and varnishing the exterior of chandeliers, as well as decorating their interior with shades of colour to provide the light with a special glow.
TUBE BAGS AND ACCESSORIES
May 9 and 10, 2014 (Friday 4–8 pm, Saturday 3–7 pm)
A two-day workshop will be dedicated to cutting, sewing, gluing, binding, stapling and painting on worn-out bicycle tubes. Our final products will be laptop bags and small bicycle bags (with zips and pockets), purses and pencil cases, cushions and unique jewellery.
June 13 and 14, 2014 (Friday 4–8 pm, Saturday 3–7 pm)
The two-day workshop will be dedicated to making furniture of various sizes from scrap cardboard. The first day we will be drawing precise designs (measures will be adapted for each particular piece of furniture to make it fit our home arrangements) and preparing the materials. The second day we will be gluing cardboard parts together, composing and varnishing them, as well as decorating them with collage patchworks and paints to match the needs of our flats.
