Join us for an adventure in “green” bookmaking! Spend the afternoon exploring Freshkills Park and joining in a workshop with artist and instructor Susan Mills in conjunction with the ongoing project UnCommon Pages. You’ll learn about bookmaking, habitat restoration, and recycling in its purest form.

The Freshkills Park site is in a continual phase change from landfill to park, a conceptual and physical reclamation. In July 2014, Susan and workshop participants harvested the invasive plant species Phragmites (also known as the common reed) on site at the park, then Susan undertook the labor-intensive process of transforming this raw material into paper sheets. Over a series of workshops like this one, these sheets are being bound as the cover stock for 2,000 passport-sized Field Notebooks.

This program is presented in partnership with the Center for Book Arts. Space is limited, please register at the link below.

Join this interactive ceramic and mosaic workshop inspired by the natural beauty of the Greenbelt. Under the direction of Janice Patrignani, visitors will be invited to create with clay, and the resulting low relief sculptures will then be fired, glazed and assembled along with mosaic glass into a dynamic community-made mural installation. As the project travels from place to place, new community made sculptures will be created & previously made pieces, once fired & glazed, will be added. Participants will also have the opportunity to add mosaic glass elements to the work in progress, as well as to pinch & coil the clay into shapes such as plants, flowers or insects. The mural in its entirety will be displayed at the SI Children’s Museum in November of 2015. This project is make possible in part by a DCA Art Fund Grant from Staten Island Arts with public funding from the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs. Registration encouraged.
