These creative workshops can be for teens, tweens, or multigenerational groups. The workshops are kept small to provide individual attention—so register promptly.

Sat, Apr 22, 2006 11 AM

Test the limits of sculpture! In this stimulating, fast-paced workshop, you'll experience design on the edge.
Come see Extreme Textiles, a new exhibition that challenges your concepts of material and form. Then work collaboratively with artist Dietrich Wegner to create a large-scale environment that surrounds viewers. Invite friends and family to come and interact with the finished products at the end of the workshop. Your creation will be "on view" from 5 to 5:30 PM.

Send an e-mail to kmeyer@wexarts.org or call (614) 292-4614 to register and reserve your space.

Please include this info for each student: name, age, address, phone number, e-mail address, and the name and phone number of an emergency contact, such as a parent or guardian. Please also let us know if you've had previous experience with Wexner Center workshops or with installation sculpture.
