This community workshop with NVRC Artist in Residence Cath Hughes will focus on intercepting the plastic waste system. Did you know that in Canada only 8% of plastics are recycled? Some single use plastic products will be banned in Canada over the next few years, but plastic bottles are not on the list. We will explore creative solutions to making something artful and inspiring from a plastic bottle or bottles. Cath will share ideas for how to cut, attach and create something new and maybe even beautiful. Any kind of plastic bottle (PET or HDPE) works - laundry liquid bottle? Juice bottle? Soda bottle? We will have many extras collected for use if you don’t have a bottle, as well as some examples of things you might try.
