This workshop invites participants to design with plastic waste and reuse it in inventive ways, giving it a new lease of life and social value. It is the circular design challenge that seeks to inspire creatives to design solutions for plastics packaging to stay in the economy, and out of the environment. Participants will get to fuse their own plastic bag waste and then learn the necessary steps on how to form this material into a product.
Workshop will consist of the following stages: 1.Introduction and welcome session; 2. Product design using guideline template; 3. Selection and preparation of materials; 4. Fusing plastic bag waste to create continuous textile; 5. Cutting plastic textile to templates; 6. Sewing/fusing pieces to create product; 7. Presentation and review of all created products;
Workshop aims to introduce circular design challenge; to impose plastic waste as resource to design a product; to share techniques and steps on how to do it yourself;
