Yamuna Forzani is hosting a bizarre workshop in preparation for her Utopia III Ball, the category is calling for ‘Garbage Island.’
“Collect all your garbage and make a bizarre effect inspired by the harrowing truth that is GARBAGE ISLAND. What is Garbage Island, you ask? An island in the ocean made from collected plastic and ocean waste. Who lives on garbage island? These are the questions you need to ask yourself before you come to the workshop.”
In this workshop you will learn about the category and create a look inspired by Garbage Island. please bring your rubbish with you as well as other items you find inspiring!
You can also join this workshop if you are not planning to walk the ball and are simply curious about the category and how to create things from junk. Recycling and having fun is the main goal of this workshop. If you are shy we can work in groups. All levels are welcome!
There will be 15 presale tickets available, and 10 tickets at the door.
You will be required to wear a mask while moving in the space.
