Hobbyist Brand Plastic Party: Limited Edition Collection Receptacles

A series of five handmade, waste collection receptacles made from recycled materials using hobby-craft techniques such as weaving, quilting, and embroidery. These functional art-objects are installed throughout downtown, encouraging festival-goers to donate their plastics to be up-cycled for use in future Hobbyist artworks. The Hobbyist will be performing on-site maintenance during the art-at-night festival.
