In partnership with Branscombe House, a workshop and information session with artist Michelle-Marie Letelier was presented for free.
Participants joined Blue Cabin artist in residence Michelle-Marie Letelier as she led a hands-on session at the historic Branscombe House, sharing various bioplastics fabrication processes and applications. Bioplastics are materials made from natural and renewable polymers, and participants of this workshop had the opportunity to create their own samples of bio-based textiles while learning about their history, applications, and their role in Letelier’s artistic practice. This workshop was open to anyone, from individuals curious about plastic alternatives to artists interested in artmaking with biomaterials.
