My first exposure, My first reuse workshop as Artoleria!


Location - my workshop corner inside Mercatopoli

What is it about my presence in the Mercatopoli Day, last Saturday? Much better than I ever expected!

What exactly? Everything! In general and in particular :)

This is the location dedicated to Artoleria,  Mercatopoli stuff prepared it  for NEO – the New from the Old (this was the title!)

For me it was a real surprise: white, pallets, wood boxes, made from the fifth door of cabinet, glass table covered with a film for the occasion, the vintage chairs … everything was perfect!

This arrangement stood in front of the people at the door! And it’s no wonder that the workshop participants joined unexpectedly and if many stopped just to look around …

The workshops have attracted much interest, especially that of bangles made from plastic bottles. In the afternoon, in great demand we repeated after one of the bottles.

The creations on display were all made from reused objects and transformed in style from me.

Some ideas I have taken from things already seen, others I made it up, but I wanted to give a style or color that could tie together and that was unique. But also create objects that are really helpful to me !

I like to reuse, yes, I like his antics, but I can not ever appreciate it if the furniture or objects that are born are not in harmony with their environment, in style, in the form or color.

To appreciate them I think, “this beautiful object, would look good in my house!”

Things on display – from clothing to jewelry – and laboratories, wanted to be an example of this.

Imagine what a satisfaction when I realized that each of the participants was able to achieve,

and only with the materials available, a bracelet perfect for the clothing she was wearing!

In the next post you will find the work products and the images of how they were made, with some explanation (tutorial).

My creations will remain on display for a while time to Mercatopoli. That’s great!

But I already miss them. (Do you realize?It’s The first time!) So I will talk about that as you do with the children when they are away from home ::))

And I will try to put up a good speech to explain how they were built.

As long as you go to read my stories sighing! : P
