Within this workshop you will learn how to use a fusing technic for the plastic bags (yes, the ones you get in the shop to bring tomatoes home), obtaining a new, cool and resistant material.
You will make your own material, colored the way you feel for, flexible and at the same time keeping its shape. Then, with the help of facilitators you will finally create a functional, sustainable and aesthetic bag.
It`s all about upcycling! If it so happened that you don’t know what it is.. Upcycling is the process of converting waste or unwanted products into new materials or products of a higher quality. The goal of upcycling is to prevent potential waste by making new products out of existing things.
Everyone is free to bring your own plastic bags of any kind to a) have the exact color & design you want b) recycle the stuff for the good of the universe!
Please bring your own iron with you. If it so happens that you don’t have one and your friends are part of the anti-iron rebellion, let us know @ email@example.com and we’ll sort something out.
The workshop is held by the creative team Infected Designers founded by Eleni Georgakila and Sandra Julve.
This is one of the DIY workshops by betahaus| Berlin.
