Recycle Workshops for Easter

With Easter around the corner and other residents in the camp gearing up for an  informal Easter Festival, I’ve decided to open the doors of the studio for a new kind of workshop. Recycling is a big part of my own artwork, and now’s the time for you to try!  Recycling is not BIG in SIngapore, but some artist do find inspiration in pre-loved materials. Before coming to the workshops, make sure you browse through some of the websites mentioned in the sidebar under Recycling, and you’re sure to find lots of inspiration.

Re-Cycle I 

A workshop about giving your old stuff a new twist. Bring along old tins (e.g. Milo tins or Soft drink cans), CDs and bottle caps (e.g. from jam jars). You can also bring along other small objects such as old screws, buttons… that can be used for decorating our one-of a kind objects. In this first of a new series, we will be making toys (good enough to be locked up in a grown-up’s cabinet). You may also bring more challenging material, and we’ll see what we can do! The way the workshop works is that participants have to bring their own junk to recycle. Tools, additional material and (some) expertise will be at hand to help you put together your own new object.  Creative input will be provided by fellow participants and myself. Metalwork expertise will also be provided by our friendly neighbour, resident and car-fixing DIY expert Oliver Da Silva. Drop in to see what everyone is doing and getting ideas for your old stuff at home, or register to get a seat and help to create your own object.! 

Timing: Friday  21st March, 2-4pm. Fees: $40. Limited to 5 participants. Adults only. 
 
Play along, bring your own material, RECYCLED ONLY.
Location: Isadora’s Workshop, 5 Hay Market, Seletar Camp.

Re-Cycle II! 

A workshop about giving your old stuff a new twist. Bring along old cloth (i.e. old clothes, bedsheets…), as well as other small objects such as buttons, beads, thread, broken zips, you name it!. In this second workshop, open to older children too (from 12 years old), make a soft toy from all that recycled material, a truely one-of-a-kind, pre-loved one. 
The artist-in-residence (me) provides tools including a sewing machine, additional material and (some) expertise to help you put together your own new object. Creative input comes from other participants too. Drop in to see what everyone is doing and getting ideas for your old stuff at home, or register to get a seat and help to creat your own object.
