How to handle contemporary materials
The course offers a new look at contemporary materials such as various types of polystyrene, foam and dispersion. The participants will become familiar with their properties and possibilities of treatment and unexpected transformation and possibilities of combinations and finishing. The course is based on the best traditions of D-I-Y (do it yourself) and supports creativity of both beginners and advanced students in work with unconventional materials. Participants will work with polystyrene plates and cut shapes from them, then colour them and create figurative or animal motifs.
