This is a short, sweet and simple workshop aimed at anyone who might need paper bags in the run up to Christmas, resents paying for something mass made and is all up for recycling. So if you are an arts or crafts person with lots of fairs coming up in the autumn, a shop owner who needs a new stash of bags, or anyone who has an hour free and fancies coming along — this is for YOU!
All materials and instructions will be provided at the workshop, so you just need to bring yourselves along for the hour. We will be using a bit of runny glue (PVA) and very sharp knives, so it will not be appropriate for anyone under 13 years.
YOU WILL TAKE HOME:
- The skills to turn unwanted magazines into paper bags
- A template to do this with
- As many bags as you can make in an hour
YOU WILL NEED:
- An apron if you have nice clothes on
