welcome

Is this you?

Are you the one pausing to admire the light texture of a dryer sheet or the translucent sheen of a plastic package?

Then join the club!

These materials, which are some of the worst offenders in the plastic pollution crisis, offer great possibilities when they are recycled as art materials.

In this course I will show you how to transform single-use plastics into layered, collaged and stitched art.

You will never look at laundry the same way after you learn how to transform dryer sheets and color catcher sheets into art material to “dye” for!

Fourteen in depth videos await your attention.

The videos will remain available for three months after course completion.

THE FUN STARTS ON FEBRUARY 5th

One in-depth video lesson dropping every week for 14 weeks.

The workshop starts with a LIVE ZOOM PARTY on Friday, February 4th at 12pm ET.

We are creating an INNOVATIVE REPURPOSING COMMUNITY of creative souls who are concerned about the environment and want to explore using repurposed materials for their artwork.

This community is a forum, here, online and you get immediate access. It will be available throughout the course and beyond.

We also meet monthly on zoom, every third Sunday afternoon ET. The invite to join is sent as soon as you sign up. We're looking forward to your contribution to the conversation!

I can’t wait to encourage your exploration, inspire your confidence, and fully share my extensive experience.

BECOME PART OF A COMMUNITY
