The Art of...Upcycling

Saturday, April 27, 2019

2:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Celebrate the Town of Amherst Sustainability Festival and ArtWeek Amherst by creating your own upcycled masterpiece!

Participants will learn about upcycling plastic bags through the process of fusing. Using the heat and pressure of a household iron, a new type of textile is formed from un-recyclable plastic bags and wrappers that would usually be thrown away. This 101 class teaches the basics of plastic bag fusing and each participant will complete a final project using the fused textile.

Space is limited and registration required.  Please visit the Reference Desk or call 413-259-3096 to register for this program.

Free & open to the public.

This program is made possible due to support and funding from the Friends of the Jones Libraries and the Woodbury Fund.
