Final fabrication workshop for 'Fat Fringe' art installation at Fix Gallery this weekend

March 5, 2010 |  7:18 am

Over the last two weekends, the design office Layer and nonprofit research center Materials and Applications have invited the public to help construct "Fat Fringe," a free-form die-cut paper canopy that is made from slicing, punching and folding sheets of paper.

There's one more chance for those interested in what the creators describe as "large-scale, high volume paper cutting." The final public workshop is from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the new gallery Fix Project Space, 1728 W. Pico Blvd. The paper installation will open at the gallery March 11 with a reception from 6 to 10 p.m.

In addition, Materials and Applications offers another off-site workshop at the Craft and Folk Art Museum on Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m., when they will be installing the woven shade structure "Weaving the Wind" from 1 to 5 p.m. RSVP to (323) 937-4230 ext. 50 or e-mail: workshops@cafam.org
