Imaginary Friends: A Family Toy-Making Workshop
Saturday 8 October, 11:00 to 13:00
Create your very own imaginary friend and bring him to life through an upcycling workshop with Junk Munkez. Using discarded soda and water bottles, we will sketch, cut, glue, paint, illustrate, and assemble the elements into toy night lights that will keep watch over you as you dive into sweet slumbers.
In this workshop, we will teach you how to turn those friends in your head into reality through fundamental illustration techniques, color schemes, shape study, and of course lots and lots of fun. Once the workshop is done, you can take what you’ve learned and apply it at home to make more of your friends materialize, while also saving plastic bottles from their ultimate polluting fates.
Help make a difference with a little fun-filled imagination!
