December, 2018, at the Broomhill Art Flat

As Christmas approached, we were wrapping up classes and preparing presents…

The folks from the Plastic Melting and Weaving workshop were finalising their masterpiece to be hung in the community flat, Suite 16.  The mural is made entirely out of plastic carrier bags, melted together with an iron, and features lots of local landmarks in and around Greenock.

Participants of Textile Upcycling were busy making more Christmas gifts from felt, as well as printing their own wrapping paper! They discovered that wrapping paper bought from shops isn’t recyclable (except brown paper), so they decided to print their own designs onto brown paper.

We had lots of items ready to go to new homes after being revamped in Furniture Upcycling!

All three of these workshops were part of the Recycle Upcycle 3D project, that was funded by Climate Challenge Fund, Greener Scotland and European Regional Development Fund and so were completely FREE.

On the 20th of December we had a Christmas event at the Broomhill Art Flat with music, mince pies and hot chocolate to have whilst making crafts or picking up some last minute handcrafted gifts!

We made Christmas tree decorations and candle holders, with prizes to win and plenty of free handcrafted-in-our-workshops gifts to take away!
