10 Oct 2011 SCRAP Workshop: COMING UNGLUED with Harriet Estel Berman
Join us in welcoming Harriete Estel Berman as she expands our horizons into a world of creating without glue!
Harriete will show participants how to attach layers of diverse materials together using simple riveting methods and small screws. Paper,fabric, buttons, cardboard, plastic, metal, charms, and trinkets can all be made into fabulous brooches (or anything else).
For the past twenty-three years Harriete has been using recycled materials to construct artwork ranging from jewelry and teacups to entire lawns of social commentary. Her work is included in over 35 books and the permanent collections of 15 museums Her work has been shown throughout the United States, in Europe and Africa.
Harriete lives in California where she fills many roles as a mother, daughter, wife, gardener, former taxi driver (for her children), exercise instructor, indentured servant to many volunteer activities and domestic goddess (just kidding).
She is currently writing an ongoing series of Professional Guidelines for artists to promote understanding, checklists, and practical solutions for recurring issues in the art and craft community. The Professional Guidelines are available at:
