Let’s get back to the old days of mend and make do; a less wasteful and excessive lifestyle even for just one day. We all feel a little disillusioned about  the state of the environment and the plastic problem from time to time.
It is hard to know what an individual can do, or where to start. Join Orlaith, Katherine and Billy in the Copper Coast Geopark Visitor Centre for a fun creative workshop to help you get started. Materials will be provided but feel free to bring along a pre-­loved garment for upcycling / repurposing.
Learn how to crochet reusable cotton makeup removers and facecloths.
(Using 100% cotton) learn how to make a rag rug using a needle made from an old toothbrush handle. (Recycling old fabric scraps)Make a t­‐shirt tote bag.
(Bring your own old t­‐shirt or we will have some on the day)
Learn how to tie a variety of useful sailor’s knots.
Get tips and tricks for getting the most from your craft materials and for
up-­‐cycling and repurposing garments and accessories.
