Art collective to deliver workshops in Plaistow about using recycling to make art
PUBLISHED: 12:19 25 May 2018
An art collective is teaching people in Plaistow and Canning Town how to make sculptures out of recycled materials.
The Floating Artland Collective is delivering a series of workshops in which plastic bags, bottles, cardboard and paper will be used to make art.
The pieces created will be exhibited at the Plaistow Festival – a week of activities celebrating groups in the area – on June 23.
Artists Indra Gavenaite, Fabiola Retamozo, Teresa Bartasaviciute and Marcelo Rodriguez will show people how to transform recycled materials into art, using experimental techniques and applying different types of media.
In a 360 degree filming workshop, participants will get familiarised with using a 360 degree camera and will be able to film the sculptures being created.
The first workshop is on May 31 at Applecart Arts from 11am-3pm and the final will take place during the Plaistow Festival on June 23 in Plaistow Park. For a full programme of workshops, visit eventbrite.com/e/lost-and-found-recycling-for-art-workshops-tickets-45997760540.
