Outdoor free workshops with THINK PLASTIC artists Fiona Hutchison and Carla Edwards.

Sea Salvage led by Fiona Hutchison

 To salvage is to rescue, save, recover, retrieve, reclaim, restore, reinstate. As the sea returns to us our discarded or lost materials it provides a wealth of materials with which to be creative. Join textile artist Fiona Hutchison for a hands on workshop using flotsam and jetsam. Combining found materials with traditional techniques of whipping, binding, knotting to create your own salvaged art, a creative reminder that materials are precious.

Creative Cartons Join jewellery designer Carla Edwards for a hands-on recycle and reuse workshop. Turn waste plastic into precious plastic and make something useful by transforming single-use milk cartons and tops into decorative soap dishes.

The drop-in workshops will take place at Balie Sear Beach near the car park between 2-5pm. Please reserve a place by booking below. Wear suitable clothing. If weather too wet or windy the workshop may be relocated to Taigh Chearsabhagh 01870603977.
