Waste workshop
workshop : trash : waste : re-use
16 November, 2013 00:00 - 17 November, 2013 00:00 10.00 - 18:00 both days
Featuring artist: Karl Larsson

During his two month residency at Ptarmigan, Karl Larsson collected not only unique items of trash from all around Tallinn but also captured (with his camera) various points of view on local waste management.

Karl's two day workshop contains both practical and theoretical parts. Participants will have an opportunity to creatively re-use the extraordinary pieces of waste collected by Karl, discuss issues and information gathered by him, and figure out if waste is an art (or maybe art is a waste).

All you need to participate is to prepare yourself to face three containers of trash (so wear working clothes and gloves) and to reserve time between 10:00 and 18:00 on 16 - 17 November.
