About Sheena Dhanaraj

As an artist, I like to dabble in various media right from graphite, acrylics & oils etc. All I wanted to do is paint and my passion for painting got me converting waste into interesting objects. I would paint on almost every surface I could find, right from pebbles, stools, pots, discarded bottles etc. This penchant for painting ignited the creativity to make products out of waste that can be useful as well as beautiful. I started creating quirky and funky flower vases out of discarded liquor bottles and then moved on to making attractive gift and storage boxes. Always endearing to learn more, I realized that newspapers are always in abundance and creating something from them would be an excellent idea. Initially, I started making newspaper bags and then loved on to making twine to make products such as baskets, coasters, pen stands etc. The pleasure received in creating something quite extraordinary and sharing this knowledge gained with like minded individuals doubles its intensity. All my products and artwork is sold under the banner of Shae and you can view them on my facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/Sheena.SHAE?fref=ts

About the Course

One man's rubbish is raw material for another one's product. There

is money in waste if only one follows the three R's of green goodness

- REDUCE, REUSE & RECYCLE. Also it is important to REFLECT before

REFUSING. In that, I mean that always 'Think before you Throw'.

Having said this, this course will be all about how to recycle

newspaper and make exquisite products out of newspaper, such as

fruit baskets, waste paper baskets, coasters, table runners, pen

stands and even jewelry. This is a basic course, where you will

understand the means of rolling newspaper into twines and shaping

them into coasters. This course is approximately 3 hours long and at

the end of the course you would have learnt how to make a painted

and varnished 3-piece coaster set with a holder.
