  • Art Workshop – TRASH IS SIMPLY A FAILURE OF IMAGINATION! – Sat, June 14, 12:30pm – 2:30pm,  Tookany/Tacony – Frankford Watershed Partnership at the Globe Dye Works, 4500 Worth Street- Participants will be provided with tools and salvaged materials, primarily obsolete laptop computers and will be instructed as to how to use the tools to take apart the laptops in order to repurpose them. 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.
