Plastic and Wooden Box Upcycling Workshop
Target Audience: General public
Hong Kong generates thousands tons of plastic and wood waste every day. In this series of upcycling workshops, we are using waste as raw materials and turning them into creative products.
In the two-hour workshop, we will first learn how to process plastic waste, including plastic classification, crushing, pressure moulding, and an introduction to wood structure. Next, participants will learn to use basic tools to transform recycled plastic sheets and wooden boards into a small box.
An exploration of the nature of plastic and wood, this workshop allows participants to understand plastic recycling, the process of material production and, hopefully, to learn to cherish every object and material.
Arrangements in response to COVID-19:
If the COVID-19 situation in Hong Kong worsens, this workshop will be canceled with refunds. Please stay tuned for the latest arrangement.
