"The Life of Rice"

"The Life of Rice" conducted by Montri Toemsombat


The Jim Thompson Art Center cordially invites you to attend the workshop:

“The Life of Rice” conducted by Montri Toemsombat, the artist who created the current exhibition at The Jim Thompson Art Center “Breaking out of the Cocoon, Growing out of Rice”. 

The workshop will be held on Saturday 28th, August 2010 from 1-5 p.m. at William Warren Library

This workshop will focus on learning how to make small sculptures out of   re-cycled materials from Jim Thompson’s factory. Participants will be asked to use their imagination to create small sculptures made with paper and silk threads which will be molded with rice grains. Rice will actually grow out of these living scuptures after three or four days. This workshop is meant to focus on how art can be combined with the laws of nature through the growing of rice.

The program is open to both of children and adults and is limited to 20 people. The workshop fee is 500 baht per person and includes materials and coffee break with snack.
