Making a sculpture out of found and recycled materials can have endless possibilities! It can also help the environment by reducing waste. Join artist Naz Rahbar in this virtual workshop and make a sculpture out of recycled objects. This activity will get us thinking about our relationship to matter and materials, similar to Mika Rottenberg in her exhibition Spaghetti Blockchain.

Workshop Facilitator: Naz Rahbar is a Toronto-based multidisciplinary artist with drawing at the core of their practice; they work in print, artist books, performance, animation, and installation. Naz graduated with a BFA from OCAD University in 2009. They have been active in arts education and community arts in Toronto (, and across the GTA for many years. They completed a bachelor of Education with a Fine Arts focus at York University in 2012, as well as MFA in 2019. Naz currently teaches at The School of Creative Arts, Animation and Design at Seneca College, as well as the joint Art and Art History program at Sheridan College and University of Toronto.
