An interactive art work which involves the community as both content and collaborator. I’m requesting donations of things that you are planning to unload at a thrift store OR that certain something that you want to get rid of but haven't been able to part with (until finding a meaningful reuse!). I am most interested in home goods - furniture, small appliances, home accessories, linens, and textiles.

From now until Feb 28, I will be welcoming donated discards at Goodyear Arts on Monday and Wednesday from 9a - 12p, during Goodyear Arts events, and by appointment.

Please find directions on my website for donating and

Theme: Sculptural Looping and Knotless Netting
Date: November 5-11, 2017

This workshop is an introduction to building three-dimensional forms with single-strand construction. Students will learn basic knotless netting and looping, have the opportunity to dye yarns, and explore the potential of traditional and experimental fiber materials. Participants will benefit from one-on-one instruction, a calm studio for individual work-time, and engaging group discussion. Students are encouraged to bring scrap yarn, thread, objects, and fabrics.

Site Seeing at C3Lab visually creates a sense of surrealism or magic by reworking or rethinking existing objects.  Inspiring a sense of sarcasm or a feeling of playfulness, the artwork reimagines your perception of realism combining familiar objects and/or experiences in similar ways with various mediums.
