THE POWER OF ART

Reshape Craft Workshops

Choose from a jumble of rescued materials: paper/card, mixed metal, hard plastic, soft plastic and textiles to reshape into object d’art. 

FOR EVERYONE

Valuable material make valuable crafts.

Facilitated by therapeutic arts and crafters. Divided into key material areas we want you to immerse yourself in our workshops with your chosen material. By reworking glass; cutting and folding metal; sewing soft plastics; moulding and shaping hard plastics; sculpting and mashing paper. We host fascinating talks on sacred geometry, wellness and how to reconnect and become more responsible with yourself and our environment.
 
Workshops are developed to help everyone see things differently and become an artivist. Progressed through inspiring development workshops where you discover how general waste items are given a second life.
SOFT PLASTICS

Crisp Packet Power Pyramid Den Workshop

Lack of separation is the reason current recycling processes are not fit for purpose. Recycling contamination occurs when materials are sorted into the wrong recycling bin (placing a glass bottle into a mixed paper recycling bin for example), or when materials are not properly cleaned, such as when food residue remains on a plastic yogurt container.

Our practical and playful workshops will start at the beginning with a mixture of engaging activities tailored to suit all ages and abilities. Created to teach anyone to be a connoisseur of materials by understanding their qualities. This knowledge will underpin future projects.

TEXTILES

Now that you can distinguish your aluminium from your tin, it is time to develop some skills. Using tools, we will experiment with a chosen material e.g. plastic, paper, metal or glass. Our rubbish artists and designers, will nurture a new potential of the waste material by helping you to unveil your creativity.
