In this upcycling session, we focus on creatively reducing waste in our environment. We work with different waste materials to create beautiful and useful products. Waste paper is turned into paper sticks and reeds that are then used to weave baskets or bowls or turned into beautiful papier-mâché objects. The discarded coconut shells are turned into useful utensils or fascinating jewelry, helping one either to adorn their homes or themselves. Our inhouse designers transform waste into numerous objects, such as crocheting plastic into bags and hats, turning bottle caps into coasters, and forming bricks out of tetra packs that can be used to build furniture.
Apart from turning waste to wealth, these sessions also promote local wisdom and sustainability practices that we have lost over the years. These sessions will help you to look at waste differently and provide you with opportunities to upcycle to experience the joy of creating wealth from waste.
Understand the importance of upcycling in the current global climate crisis
Witness and experience the transformation of waste into useful products
Upcycling is the process of making objects from waste materials, which means materials that would have been thrown away are made into useful and valuable products for use. Our current climate crisis is pushing us to reflect on our consumption patterns. If we wish to avoid the climate crisis we have to transition to a more sustainable lifestyle which encourages upcycling.
