August 18th, 3-5pm 1960 Mandela Parkway Oakland, CA 94607 oaktownhall.com Learn the art of upcycling from the street forage masters of the Grand Rue in Haiti. In this two-hour workshop each person will gain hands-on experience with primitive tools. We will transform recycled rubber into wearable art. Design your figure, shape or emotion on paper, then transfer your sketch onto rubber. The Atis Resistans Artists: Romel, Racine and Claudel will give you a brief overview of Haitian Creole VooDoo and help you to incorporate spirits and history into your design (if you wish). Leave class with a strong foundation for transforming trash into art.
