Nevada Humanities presents 2nd Wednesday - Nevada-Inspired Puppets using Upcycled and Natural Material with Zoe Bray
Make a Nevada-inspired puppet with upcycled and natural materials
Celebrate winter Nevada festivities by making art sustainably. Participants will learn how to create puppets using only upcycled and natural materials. We will rely solely on found objects to make our creations and use organically homemade glue. This workshop is open to humans of all ages and levels of skill.
Registration is strongly recommended. Space and materials are limited to 20 participants and priority will be given to those who are registered.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own disposed-of materials, such as plastic bottles, caps, straws, cardboard, buttons, bits of string and toilet rolls, and anything else they fancy transforming into a work of art.
Zoe Bray is a fine art painter and eco-artist. Her practice focuses on painting and drawing from nature, using traditional fine art techniques and experimenting with unconventional approaches. Her work explores the boundaries between art and ethnography, engaging in questions of identity, representation, and human connection with nature.
Zoe trained as a painter in Italy and in Spain, and holds a PhD from the European University Institute in Florence, and an MA from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland.
Zoe's love of art and nature has brought her to offer live painting performances and workshops in a variety of places including NYC's American Natural History Museum and the YMCA in Jerusalem. She considers both the wilderness of Nevada and her native Basque Country her home.
