Weave the Best Out of Waste: Plastic Bottle Table Lamp
Target Audience: General public
According to Wikipedia, the goal of upcycling is to prevent wasting potentially useful materials by making use of existing ones. This reduces the consumption of new raw materials when creating new products; and hence reduces energy usage, air pollution, water pollution, and even greenhouse gas emissions.
In this workshop, we will combine used water bottles with other existing materials and custom-made parts, and turn them into uniquely-personalized lamps. During the session, we hope to raise awareness of waste reduction, upcycling and the role of design in enhancing quality of life as well as giving waste a second life.
Notes to Participants:
– Children under the age of 12 should be accompanied by an adult. In such a case, the artwork will be co-created by them
