Reuse




The main theme for my course until the end of November is Reuse. It is a really wide theme when you start to look into the way artists have reused ideas and cultural norms from the past in their work. I am only just touching the tip of the iceberg at the moment. I had to make something as well, which was a more obvious path for me. It was something of a light relief to be honest.

I collected a pile of packaging, it’s surprising how quickly this is done, and then worked out how to use the plastic instead of fabric to make a bowl. I intend to make some paper beads, probably from colour supplements, to hang around the edge. It actually feels very firm and quite nice.

  6. Hi Jackie,

    The class you are taking sounds great. I'd love to take something like that.
    Please continue to share what you learn about reusing.
    I recycle a lot in my work and would love to figure out other ways of recycling.
    Your bowl looks great.
    Thank you for sharing,
