This year the Black Rock Arts Foundation's ScrapEden playa-garden draws on the likeness of a working-class American backyard. We'll create a casual, welcoming environment strewn with clotheslines of colorful, flowing panels of fabric.
Each panel of fabric, about 1 x 1 to 2 x 2 feet in size, will have a single word on it.
On the playa, participants will be able to rearrange the words to create sentences, create and leave a new word or take a word that speaks to them as a gift. The visual effect will be a poetic combination of clotheslines, prayer flags and quilts, with a dash of magnetic poetry.
We will be crafting together this Monday!
Come join us, bring some fabric and ideas or just bring yourself and we will put you to creating with our supplies!
