Jozef Bajus takes discarded materials and creates beauty from them. The workshop will use participant’s unwanted watercolors, the ones that don’t resonate with you anymore. The recycled watercolor paintings will be cut, torn, folded, woven, layered and transformed into a new work of art. Deconstruct to Construct: Experimenting with Transforming Paper is open to any level of participants, from beginner to professional artists.
