A creative and eco-friendly craft class for kids! Opportunity to create decorations for yourself, or to share as gifts. Learn to transform recycled materials such as leather, scrabble letters, paper towel rolls, and tea lights into fabulous Christmas crafts. We will create several beautiful classic Christmas decorations using locally acquired supplies from thrift stores, dumpsters, and even my own Cave Creek back yard.
Benefits: Every piece we create will have a unique and wonderful origin story. The children will be intrigued when we tell them where the art materials come from. We will walk away with an appreciation of how we can inspire our own creativity and do our part to save our environment one small bit at a time.

Desert Winds Art

Josephine Wilt, Multimedia Artist

Motivation: Sustainability is at the heart of my creative process. I turn cast-off materials rescued from local thrift stores, dumpsters, and desert landscapes into fine art.

Inspiration: My artwork shares a very tactile impression of our incredible Arizona origins, its natives, and its landscapes. I am inspired by the desert views from my Cave Creek backyard and the pine forests of the Mogollon Rim.

While I use a variety of materials and processes in each art piece, my methodology focuses on a multimedia layered collage approach. The subject matter of my work determines the materials and the forms of each composition. My art contains a variety of different materials including repurposed leather and suede, hand-crafted paper pulp, felted sheep’s wool, found rusted metalwork, and botanical elements.

My goal is to give each piece multiple dimensions and to enhance the connection I feel with my environment.
