  • Taking inspiration from Fabrice Cazenave, in this workshop Fiona will guide you in painting on discarded thick upholstery and presenting the finished work in a drape style.
  • Using colourful paints, fabrics and cut outs in this workshop Ana will teach techniques and methods of how to ‘Reframe’ discarded photo and art frames.
  • In this Waste 2 Art inspired workshop, get creative with Ana making a mobile out of bailing twine, strapping, toilet paper rolls and paper.
