Craft nights, Fashion show and Gallery and Lab
It is fun seeing all of the extra events that surround ZeroLandfill events in the various markets. ZeroLandfill Denver hosted a DiY Night at Gensler to kick off their project.
ZeroLandfill Seattle had a crafting party to get marketing about the CEU out to firms and student volunteers played with materials to come up with creative samples to show at the CEU in May.
ZeroLandfill Nashville had a auction of beehives made by students in interior design programs for TN-ASID State Conference. This one was created by UT-Chattanooga.
This year ZeroLandfill Cleveland will be hosting a ZeroLandfill Gallery and ZeroLandfill Lab during Harvest in July and August.
ZeroLandfill Gallery is a way to showcase projects that have been created from ZeroLandfill materials by artists, for the classroom or by students. Because we have so many educators that come, it is also a place to show how you use the materials as a tool (during our recent book art workshop, we used laminate chips as bones for folding). Feel free to bring a photography or your project to share with others during Harvest events. You can download the form to accompany your work here.
ZeroLandfill Lab is a place to test the materials with different tools, glues, pigments and see examples of the materials after dyeing, freezing or ceramic processes. Laura Tawil, an arts educator, is pulling this together. I have talked to her over the years as she has experimented with the best way to cut laminate chips or hold materials together. This is a time to experiment or share your best practices.
What are some of the ways you have used ZeroLandfill materials as either material or tool?
