Sawdust sculpture workshop this April @ Lopez Museum

What do you do with the fine particles of wood produced from cutting with a saw? Well, you can make sawdust clay to produce sculpture pieces. It’s easy and fun to do.

Sculptor Ikoy Ricio will hold a workshop to teach participants 21 years old and above to create sculptures, starting from framework making, sawdust coating, and putting finishing touches. The workshop is at the Lopez Museum on April 13, 14, 15 and 17 from 2 to 5pm. The fee is P3000 (inclusive all materials and handouts).

Ricio studied the art under Roberto Feleo, one of the artists known for sculptures made of sawdust whose inspirations are ethnic images. Ricio’s sawdust sculptures were recently exhibited in Tell-tale: The Artist as Storyteller, Amorsolo as Co-Author. He created sawdust sculptures based on Amorsolo’s illustrations for Camilo Osia’s Philippine Readers (1924) such as Soap Parade, Shoe Skulk, Coat Sprint, Towel Stun and Towel Crawl among others.

Ricio graduated from the UP College of Fine Arts. Aside from being involved in cover and book design, illustration, production design, and stage/set design, he has taught art classes since 2003.

The Lopez Memorial Museum is located at the ground floor, Benpres Building. Exchange Road corner Meralco Avenue, Pasig City. Museum days and hours are Mondays to Saturdays, 8am-5pm, except Sundays and holidays. For more information, call 6312417 or email
