The Creating Art from Waste Workshops are usually facilitated by either or both Mardi (left in the photo) from ReNewy Living and Diana from See ya Sista. Di is an experienced artist who creates art from found and foraged materials.
Passionate about waste reduction, we guide you in embracing your creativity to transform waste into something remarkable. We personally forage, collect, and clean the marine debris and waste, in preparation for your workshop.
We hope you’ll leave with something you’re proud of, as well as letting it be the impetus for every day conversation about minimising our waste.
Please note: there may be alternative facilitators for this workshop, based on availability and circumstances.
Marine debris litters the shoreline of our beaches and lakes and this waste has devastating effects on our animals, our health and the planet. This workshop is one way we can use what’s already in circulation but doesn’t discount the fact that we really need to refuse and reduce our consumption.Related stories and products from French for Tuesday:
