Colourful Garlands & Decorations – Repurposing Plastic NEW

Kate Sale beg

This workshop begins with a brief tour of FAC's kids' exhibition 'Hundreds and Thousands'. Taking inspiration from all the colourful, playful works start your own journey into art making.

Did you love all the colourful garlands you saw in the galleries? Learn how to create your very own fun garlands and decorations using an assortment of used colourful plastics. Combine them with wire and other interesting elements to give them your own unique touch. A fun workshop of discovery into the repurposing of used plastics and other objects.
