Embrace sustainable living and learn to turn items you would normally throw away into something functional and beautiful! In this three-hour workshop, participants will create either a bucket tote bag or an A4-sized folio by upcycling and repurposing rescued PVC banner sheets using a ‘no-sew’ method. Learn a basic embroidery technique to secure the bag’s edges and have fun embellishing and personalising your bag with additional materials provided!

* Participants must be at least 5 years old. Children aged 5 to 8 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian (one ticket admits a child aged 5 to 8 and a parent/guardian).
