Natalya Khorover's Plastic Nature, a sustainable mixed media workshop
Here’s a creative way to help clean up our planet: make art from single-use plastic bags. Collect them for a few weeks and you’ll discover a myriad of colors, thicknesses, patterns and textures available to you. With Natalya's guidance, you’ll make art inspired by nature from the plastic bags you’ve gathered. She will show you how to prepare the plastic, cut it and stitch it by hand and machine. You will experiment with different types of stitching and finishes, and create an artwork like no other.
You will also need an inspiration photo or two or three, of a nature scene (a flower, a tree, rocks, landscape) printed on plain paper to 8”x10” or larger to use as a starting point.
Don’t spend good printer ink on this photo, plain paper is just fine. If you want to print it larger than 8”x10”, just print out in sections and tape together.
Registration Opens: Sunday, August 14, 2022
