Bio Plastics Workshop

On Saturday, November 20th, 2010, Fine Arts presented a bioplastics workshop by artist David Prince, whose work was featured in the MAKE : CRAFT exhibition at the Ben Maltz Gallery in the fall of 2010.  The workshop was attended by students and alumni from fine arts, foundation, product design, and architecture/landscapes/interiors.  In the workshop, students experimented with creating colored plastic film from potato starch.  The resulting bio-degradable, translucent plastic was then used to make small lanterns."
