Zero Waste Makers

What is it?

 

This local group offers a platform to connect, share ideas, experiences and knowledge around zero waste. During the class we’ll explore the creative potential of local waste and donated items to be turned into fashion, art, crafts and sustainable alternatives to new items. This is a safe, inclusive and supportive space focusing on connecting people to their creative selves; environmental issues; the sharing of skills, ideas and making. If you have skills you would like to share with us, give us a nod.

 

The class culminates in an annual exhibition of work by participants and collaborators.

How can it help the environment?

 

By upcycling and reusing locally sourced waste and donations we can make a difference towards a reduction in consumption, waste, energy, emissions and demand on virgin resources. We can keep items for longer and lower environmental impact, reducing the demand for ‘new’ bought items/demand on resources.
