This workshop is a unique intro to the magical, creative world of mail art. Create your own projects and get amazing things in the post! Mail Art 101 will provide with a bit of history, a lot of hands-on fun and a tonne of inspiration to get you going on your own.
Our pals at Wikipedia sum up Mail art as a worldwide cultural movement that began in the early 1960s and involves sending visual art (but also music, sound art, poetry) through the international postal system. The Mail Art 101 workshop will provide with a bit of history, a lot of hands-on fun and a tonne of inspiration to get you going on your own. Instructor Erin Fae’s mail art work appears in the book Good Mail Day and has been part of numerous mail art exhibitions.
We’ll supply some materials, but bring anything that you’d like to work into your mail art masterpiece! Just remember it’s gotta fit in the post!
