Artist Workshop Recycled Sculptures with Jackie Inglefield
/// March 19 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
How can we reduce, reuse and recycle in our everyday lives? Join artist Jackie Inglefield in a workshop focused on sustainability and the use of recycled materials to create a New Orleans-inspired hanging door sculpture!
Using hand tools, participants will explore quilting techniques to construct a vibrant sculpture out of recycled plastic. After learning about the effects of plastic waste on the environment, participants will then reuse objects such as plastic water bottles to stop the plastics from entering landfills, oceans and the environment. Participants will “rebirth” the objects, giving them a new life by creating artwork with the recycled materials.
The workshop includes a guided-tour of Second Time, Second Line exhibition.
All materials are included. Masks required.
