TRAASH is committed to education! In addition to teaching, I also provide workshops to other art educators on how to incorporate recyclables into their classroom.
Art Educators of New Jersey Conference
In 2010, I taught a workshop titled "Plastic Bag Jewelry". The workshop introduced participants to crafts made with plastic bags and focused on making pendants by coiling (a basketmaking technique). Each person received 3 feet of cotton clothesline to coil their plastic bags around. Before coiling they had to cut their plastic bags into strips and loop them together to make plastic yarn (plarn). Some coiled their bags into flower shaped pendants while others made more abstract ones.
