Workshop Overview

In this workshop we will make masks, headdresses or body sculptures from papier-mâché that embody our individual connections to the landscape and our notions of wilderness. As a group, we will explore Sitka’s natural area and, with the help of a local expert, learn about local ecological and cultural history. We will learn the art of making something powerful from everyday items such as brown paper, corn starch glue and found materials. This method of art making can be translated into a wide variety of sculptural undertakings. The idea is that we will "become" an aspect of the wild space. Come and get in touch with what is wild in the landscape and what is wild within ourselves through art.
