Last April 2015 I collected about 150 pairs of bound shoes at the FABNYC
Load Out repurposing workshop. It was fun and productive but I still have a long way to go.
I will be collecting shoes from now until Jan 30 2016
My Goal is to collect 1000 pairs of shoes.
I will exhibit them in Manila
next year at http://drawingroomgallery.com
( link to my recent show http://drawingroomgallery.com/art-fair/cige-2015/
After the exhibition we will unbind the shoes and donate them through a charitable organization in Manila to the Haiyan typhoon victims
Stay tuned for Shoe Binding workshop/parties at Bliss on Bliss
PS Manila friends stay tuned I am also working with friends organizing similar workshops in Manila next year and for drop off points as well
Donate New or Old But Wearable shoes
Donate New or Old But "Wearable" shoes and bind them with recyclable fabrics, string, yarn, old clothes etc. Anyway you want to do it. Just 2 rules.
1. Nothing permanent like Glue or staples
2. Keep them in pairs
(Optional) Take a photo of you and your shoe donations and email to me. ( Photos and credits will appear in the show )
Email me at email@example.com to arrange for pick up and/or drop off.
You can also mail them to Bliss on Bliss Studio 4149 45th St. Sunnyside NY 11104
