Come play with materials and your imagination! No experience needed – only a willingness to experiment and dream. Each participant will construct at least one little sailboat, using mostly recycled cardboard, papers (music and maps), fibers (vintage fabrics, handkerchiefs), twigs, twine and personal found objects. All materials provided but participants may bring personal found objects to personalize their boats.
Instructor Kathleen Koopman’s work focuses on assemblage, using found objects, rust, maps, music, old photographs, etc. Her process is to create a narrative with memories and dreams intertwined, exploring metaphors associated with boats, creating ethereal, evocative installations.
