Here’s a chance to use discarded items to create new objects, funny or clever or beautiful or thought-provoking. We will all help each other with our imaginations and skills.

There will be plenty of “found” material supplied; however people should bring any kind of material they can find, anything that is old and ready to be discarded and that they find appealing to re-use.

So: metal, plastic, paper, fiber, anything… We will be putting things together using glue, screws, twine, and we’ll bring down an array of tools , glues, screws, etc etc. 

Falmouth Art Center Refund Policy:

Refunds will not be given within one month of the start of a workshop. Workshops are not pro-rated. A $25 processing fee is withheld from all refunds.

The Art Center reserves the right to cancel any workshop due to insufficient enrollment, in which case tuition will be fully refunded.
