Janette Schuster, the author of Mixed-Media Collage Jewelry: New Directions in Memory Jewelry, will be teaching local workshops on found object art. This eco-friendly art form involves reinventing as art materials objects most people toss in the trash or recycling bin.
On Saturday, August 29 Schuster will demonstrate how to make her popular small icon assemblages in a workshop entitled "Little Saints and Sinners: Miniature Ancestor Icons." Students will make several icons by transferring family photos on wood and embellishing them with found objects.
In "Robot Riot" on Saturday, September 26, students will learn how to use found materials, including items from the grocery and hardware stores, to construct a unique found object robot.
Each full-day workshop will be held at a private studio located on the village green in Walpole. Tuition of $125 includes written instructions and most materials.
