Hyewon Grigoni

Looking for a trick or treat alternative? Allow life stressors to shrink away while you design and create your own shrinkydink art. Shrinkydinks were popularized in the 70s and 80s and sold as kits to color and bake. Local artist Hyewon Grigoni will demo and guide you through drawing out your own images and designs (no drawing experience needed!) on plastic film, and shrinking them in her traveling oven. Watch the magic as your shrinkydink becomes three times as small, and nine times as thick as the original film. Your creations can be enjoyed on their own, or fastened to earring backs, magnets, wearable art, key chains and more. You will delight in the condensed colorization and miniature size of your tiny art piece. Remember, anyone can make shrinkydinks, no matter their artistic level! Come willing to have fun and enjoy your personal creations by the end of the workshop. All supplies will be provided, but funky materials to showcase final pieces are highly encouraged.

Wearing costumes to the workshop is encouraged!
