Event Details

During this workshop you’ll learn how to turn plastic bags into plastic yarn (PLARN). Then inspired by the work and techniques of The Recycling Women of the Gambia the PLARN will be used for some
eco-crochet and a small case to store bank or other cards.

All materials can be provided but please feel free to bring along your own plastic bags (at least 2), a 3.0mm or 4.0mm crochet hook, a feature button, big scissors and a big eye needle.

The workshop is ideal for anyone with some basic crochet skills but it’s also an opportunity for absolute beginners to have a go.

Taking this workshop is Sharon Goodwin from Sew Silly Lily in collaboration with
Plastic Free Helensburgh. Sharon is a graduate of Glasgow School of Art with a
lifelong passion for textiles, craft and design
