The Sculptural Form

Discover how Barbara De Pirro creates environmental sculptural forms and installations using both reclaimed & organic materials. Explore a range of techniques that transform these found materials into a ‘fiber' that can be manipulated into dimensional structures. Learn how to translate methods traditionally found in the textile, jewelry, basketry & industrial arts using unconventional materials.

In addition to creating samplings of each of the techniques, De Pirro will share photos, samples & insight about creating large scale sculptural art installations.

In this process you will learn how to develop these small ideas into large scale structures and environments. All levels welcome, come with a sense of adventure!
