Tape Project: 2012

For several years now I have given my Design II. students an assignment lovingly referred to as “the tape shoe project”. The project consists of creating a full size shoe using only masking tape. This year I decided to mix things up just a bit by adding two options to the assignment. Option #1: students may choose to use duct tape, and option #2: students may choose to use an object, other than a shoe, as a model. The results, besides the traditional shoes, included a dress, jacket, video game console, hat, and Lady Gaga’s shoe to name a few. Here are some of the finished projects:

Tin Workshop at Society for Contemporary Craft

I taught a one-day tin collage workshop this past Saturday at SCC in Pittsburgh. A great space to work in, and  a fun class with energetic students: Steve, Kim, Judith, Susan, and Honey the dog. Here are some photos from the workshop.
