Turn your recycled paper into an artistic sculpture! The Burnaby Arts Council is proud to present our latest workshop, Paperclay sculpture making with Hong TanTan. Join us on June 26 at 2:00pm as we walk through the process of making organic clay with simple household items and ingredients.

This workshop is for sculptors and or anyone who is interested in working with natural and recycled materials foraged from home. Participants will dive into how we can use recycled paper and organic glue to turn them into paper clay.

You’ll come out of this workshop with the materials to make a variety of things like flower pots, bowls, artistic sculptures and more! This workshop is great for young adults, and families.

Register soon because space is limited!
