Art from recycling

Three more attractions at Seletar Airbase during the long Easter weekend 🙂

Re-Cycle I ! A workshop about giving your old stuff a new twist. Bring along old tins (e.g. Milo tins), 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. The artist-in-residence (Isabelle) provides tools, additional material and (some) expertise to help you put together your own new object. 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. Registration: at Postcards from Seletar , click on Events or by phone: 9273 4991, at least one week in advance.

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, Isabelle, provides tools including a sewing machine, additional material and (some) expertise to help you put together your own new object. 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.
Timing: Saturday 22nd March, 10-12pm. Fees: $30. Limited to 5 participants. Play along, bring your own material, RECYCLED ONLY.

Recycle III: Free Demonstration: How to make your own papier mâché. Isabelle will demonstrate how to make sculptures form paper, using recycled paper. Both methods of layering and pulp will be shown, together with the ingredients needed. Artist’s own Sculptures will be on exhibition and for sale. Just drop in!
