I had the chance to lead a fun workshop at MUDAM on 13 & 20 December 2014.
The workshop was fully booked and the participants made very creative use of Tyvek.
I did not make it easy for them: First they had to use the 2D paper or fabric-like Tyvek and give it structure, using different techniques.
Their 3 dimensional object had to be able to “contain” something – we tested with candy. 🙂
The results were already very promising. (Unfortunately I do not have any pictures)
Using their newly acquired know-how, they could choose and reproduce or change one of the 3 lampshade models I had prepared for them.
Look at some of the results & the work vibe below (Photos: MUDAM) :
First, a little design lesson:
This was the Workshop Text:
For people aged 13 or above
Art Freak offers a one or two day workshop with an artist or a designer. The workshops are moments of exchange and production.
Tyvek® is Julie Conrad’s favorite material and she puts it at the center of this workshop. It feels and looks like paper but it is much more versatile. It is water- and tearproof, it can be folded, cut, glued, woven, painted or ironed. In this workshop you will explore the possibilities of Tyvek® and, under the guidance of the designer, you will make your own object.
The workshop is given by designer Julie Conrad.
Min. 3, max. 12 participants
