Featured Workshop: Lifesize Superheroes
Your team has secret powers. Display them as a life size superhero figurine. We provide curated industrial offcuts, recyclables, lumber, and art supplies to get your team looking at everything in a new light. Our facilitators guide your group through 2D and 3D artmaking activities that allow both the bold and the shy to express themselves, find their inner beauty, and combine their passions to create imaginative solutions to the world's biggest problems.
As a warm up activity, individuals will make Assemblage Self Portraits using reDiscover's selections 2,500 sf Upcycled Materials Warehouse, everything from 5 1/4" floppies to lamp hardware to bottle caps. Making and presenting these Self Portraits gets your team talking and laughing, seeing one another in a new light, as well as create a memorable keepsake of the workshop. Then, with some familiarity with working with upcycled materials, the team shifts into designing and building Lifesize Superheroes. Using reDiscover's fully stocked and staffed woodshop and materials library, small groups work together to amplify each team member's secret passion or ability into superhero proportions, build a lifesize wooden armature, and finish it with recycled materials to make an instant sculpture. It's a fun, funny, rapid paced process that results in some amazing art and personal insights.
