Description

Would you like to guarantee your recyclable waste is getting recycled?

Most of us try to recycle where we can, but we can’t always be assured our waste ends up in the right place. More and more, we hear about our plastic footprint and experts say that by the year 2050, there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish!

Join us in this workshop using and combining recycled objects to create a unique sculptural piece that holds succulents. The workshop will explore different combinations of connecting the recycled objects, adding colour and texture then the succulents to create hanging or standing features.

The succulents and most of the recycled objects will be provided.  (You’re welcome to bring your own!).
