Recycled Plastic Lanterns


Create your own lantern using recycled plastic bags and polythene.

This is Anna's signature workshop; she's been working in recycled plastics since 2001 and has delivered many workshops and projects using these techniques.

Thursday 12th March, 7 - 9 pm, £25

Learn basic plastic fusion techniques allowing you to transform plastic bags in to exciting new things; explore the technique and create your own lantern; it's up to you if you want to go festive, but they do make a lovely simple decoration!

You will be working with Anna Roebuck who set up her business bags2riches in 2001 with the aim of creating desirable objects from everyday waste. Since then she has become an expert in using waste plastic along with other recycled materials creating contemporary jewellery, lighting and artwork.

Please bring along old plastic carrier bags, bubble wrap, fruit nets and any other polythene to recycle.
