Making PLAYE - Workshops
Up-cycling plastic bags into useful materials and products
The making Playe workshop will teach you the very basics you need to get up-cycling plastic bags into materials and products that you can use very day. Wallets, pouches, computer and phone sleeves and more can be made with plastic bags once you know how to fuse it together. If you are a person that likes making, or sewing things, this is perfect for you to access a material that is perfect for innumerable applications and that helps repurpose plastic materials diverting them from landfill.
Every participant goes home with an overload of knowledge of what is possible with plastics plus they get to make a product or two or more, from scratch to take home.
Video material and links will be provided so you can guide yourself, as you enter the world of upcycling for future undertakings.
Some people would think - 'Oh but he is giving away his ideas'- and yes, i am because i believe that if we want to solve the current plastic crisis, everyone should know methods on how to repurpose plastic into something useful, so then there can be a bigger positive impact on the problem from the entire community.
And also, because my brain works different than yours, so i would absolutely love to see what you can come up with.
