    Course Description:
    Take a fresh look at an everyday material, and then apply your new perspective to three-dimensional design. Corrugated cardboard has inherent character and beauty. A useful versatility and undulating patterns beckon investigation of the infinite ways this undervalued material can be used. In this workshop we will explore the potential of new and recycled cardboard as a material for creating two and three-dimensional, functional, and nonfunctional objects.

    We also work with plaster, cement, paint, fire, water, weight, glue, screws, twist ties, pins, and other materials. We will explore cutting, laminating, and shaping cardboard.

    We will have lectures, technical demonstrations, slide presentations, plenty of hands-on time, and lots of fun!
