Each participant will be given an old wooden cigar box that will be decorated with the computer parts. After the boxes are “trash-blinged” they can hold materials from recycling for uses the new artist sees fit in the future. A primary goal in these events is to give people a lifetime of permission to play with trash and recycling. Ideas for creative reuse of the boxes will be suggested during the workshop.
