Happy Craftmas!

By Esther Ellard

This Christmas we invited Francli in for an up-cycling welly workshop – transforming bog standard wellies into hand-crafted utility mobile phone cases! Makers learnt how prep the material, cut a phone case pattern, mark and punch holes, saddle stitch and finish the edges.

We were also joined by the innovative Happenstance Workshop for a Grind : Melt : Mould Workshop.

This workshop was an introduction into closed loop plastics manufacturing on a small scale. Makers were invited to sort, grind and mould plastic and learnt how this is done a smaller scale to that of an industrial facility. Using DIY machines and a Low Tech approach to industrial moulding makers were  guided through a new era of plastic manufacture. What better time of year to explore the importance of recycling and closed loop manufacture?!

Join a new workshop this 2018!
