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 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.
