If you remember making woven lanyards at camp out of plastic lacing, this is an eco-update! While it’s best to reduce our bottle use entirely, there are still single use bottles clogging our waterways. Try out a way to transform these into usable material. Learn how to make a simple and portable plastic bottle cutter and leave with yards of plastic to use as heavy duty cordage, for weaving and basketmaking, in jewelry applications, and, with a little heat, as a way to join items together. Bring clean smooth PET bottles (such as soda liter bottles); tools provided. Limited capacity workshop: please let us know if your plans change after making a reservation.
