Event Details

Sculptural Mixed Media Handbags


Instructor: Marisa Bernotti


Department: Fiber


In this workshop handbags are deconstructed and reinvented with paint and sculptural additions. Using a handbag as a metaphor we are going to explore the strong contrast between what others want to see in us and what we really are, what we really know about ourselves. Others have preconceptions about us, and even when we explain our true nature, they continue to impose their perceptions. 


Ages 17 and up


Monday August 9, 2021


4:00- 8:00 pm 


Cost $60


Materials provided by the Peoria Art Guild: Second-hand handbags, painting supplies, variety of materials


Optional Materials provided by student: The handbag you want to make the sculpture. Get in mind that it will not work as a handbag any more. So bring a Handbag for that reason. (You can bring more than one)

Second-hand, thrifted, or upcycled materials easily found around the house: such as beads, wire, Holiday ball ornaments, pompons, crepe paper, cardboard, cord, trim
