Recycle, Reuse! / 10-16 years

You’ll use a fabric press to bind single-use plastic bags into a thicker material from which you’ll create your recycled bags. You can craft them into a patterned fabric by stacking coloured plastic together, and later cut them using a laser cutter. Using a press and a sewing machine, you’ll create unique sustainable objects.

You’ll get to take your very own sustainable bag with you after the workshop is concluded.
