I will personally pick you up from the very central spot which is the main ferry pier at the asian side of Istanbul called Kadikoy. Heading to my studio. Meeting each other and have a chat to get to know what we are about to begin and why. Then i will be showing you the technic and helping you to create your own unique artwork during the session. I will provide the material you use but you may also bring your own PET plastic bottles with you. We will also have plenty of time to discuss, share and talk about art, local art scene and and the reason why we need to recycle plastic while the works dry out. Each session will take 4 hours. This will be enough to learn and practice the technic. Know that to finalize a complex work of art needs time. You may bring a simple picture with you to work on or i will provide you ready samples for you to start right away. At the end of the workshop you will be ready to work on your own to keep practicing this method to make valuable objects rather than throwing them into trash.
I’m an independent artist. I am making stained glass windows out of PET plastic waste which i collect from around. It’s an attempt to up-cycle the ever-growing plastic waste that humanity produce and transform them to create a unique artwork instead. I joined many art shows including solo ones displaying the plastic stained glass works. I haven’t learned or see it somewhere. This is totally my own invention
PET plastic, silicon gun, binder and sample pictures
We will meet at the main ferry pier of the asian side of Istanbul. Exactly at the karakoy-kadikoy ferry pier. Then we will walk for 5 minutes to reach the studio. It is situated at the artist district called Yeldegirmeni.
You don't need to have any artistic background to attend this workshop.
