Inspired by the exhibition Sculpted, Etched and Cut: Metal Works from the Permanent Collection, participants will sculpt ordinary aluminum foil using various found objects as a frame, and add details using glue and magazines. A sculpture is a three-dimensional art work created by shaping or combining hard materials - typically stone or marble, metal, glass, or wood.
