Corks - From Tree to Bottle to Sculpture

Youth Art Exchange - xSpace | 5137 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA 94112

All Ages | More Information

Used wine and champagne corks will serve as a window into Quercus Suber, the Cork Oak Tree. Students will learn where this tree grows, how cork bark is renewably harvested every nine years, and what makes this material so versatile and valuable. Then the class will turn to hand-skills, cutting and gluing corks into a small hand-held sculpture.
