MAKE > paper bags with friends

Our first collaborative project as a collective has begun: Paper bags with friends!

We each begin with a paper bag and then alter it with stitching, drawing, tearing, dyeing, puncturing, painting, marking, repairing... then we pass it on to another member of the collective.

Do you use Pinterest? We have started a collaborative Pin board full of paper bag inspiration here.
My favourite image on the pin board so far is a work by Yuken Teruya. Teruya is an artist based in New York who creates intricate paper cuts. His work Notice - Forest a collection of trees sculpted from shopping bags is currently showing at the Art Gallery of NSW as part of the Biennale of Sydney. It is definitely worth a visit!
