Embrace the Waste
October 8, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm PDT
In this virtual hands-on workshop, attendees will learn how to make a loom from upcycled packaging items and weave with plastic yarn.
In “Embrace the Waste,” artist Natalie Yap weaves with resources which are accessible and available at home, items such as single use disposable bags and packaging waste, cardboard, plastic cups, and even single use forks.
This workshop not only highlights the abundance of resources that are often taken as “waste” or disposable, but also provides instruction for ways to creatively engage with these materials. Participants will learn how to make a loom from everyday packaging items and also weave with plastic yarn! In sharing ways to be resourceful, Yap hopes that we can stop to consider the waste we do produce and be more intentional about our consumption.
This is a free to attend workshop, with the suggested $5 donation to Natalie for her time, facilitation and knowledge sharing.
