Natalya Konforti / Glitches and Stitches
Participants learnt how to up-cycle their plastic waste into a modern piece of quilted artwork, designed to pair with the exhibition ‘Reframing Plastic’.
Participants were encouraged to bring in their own packaging to up-cycle: heavy plastic bags are easiest to work with but packaging from grocery items like pasta, nuts and crisps could be used as well. They had a selection of material collected to choose from if need be.
Switch mentalities and treat plastic as a resource in lieu of a waste.
Registrations are now closed.
