Learn about where your waste goes for recycling and the imact on the people that live there. Look at alternative options for the waste we produce.
Bottles into Birds
Turn your bolles into birds, elephants, cuos and more. Papier Mache and paint can also be used to decorate.
Recycle your Lunch!
Using washed items collected in the previous week students will make animals, beads and more.
Making music from your waste. Learn how to make a drum, a one stringed guitar and shakers.
Used paper, magazines and found objects to create colourful beads. Learn about the glass trade beads of west Africa and how they are made.
Rather than taking the objects home students can work on a large insilation as part of a longer project. Why not have a flock of birds flying through your trees? Or work on a large centre piece for your school.
Your limit is your junk and your imagination. Let us know your learning objectives and we will work with you to create a bespoke project perfect for you.
All our school workshops aim to introduce positive views of Africa and challenge stereotypes. Activities are unifying, adapting to the differing abilities of those within the group.
Recycling Workshops the details
How do we timetable?
Our team will work with you to get the best outcome to reach your objectives.
A session can be from 7 seperate classes a day or we can work intensively with one class.
How Many Students?
As standard we work with a class at a time, if you have space we are happy to work with 2 classes at a time (or up to 60 students) in your hall or larger room.
Maximum – 7 workshops or up to 420 students in a day with one art activity.
How Long is a Class?
We recommend classes of 60 minutes, though 40 is possible.
We are very happy to work on longer more in depth projects and instilations, as an artist in residence, or simply by working with one class for a full day.
Can We Mix Activities?
Depending on the practitioner available you may mix in as many activities as you have time for. There is no additional charge for this so why not follow an arty morning with a musical afternoon?
What Do You Need?
Very Little! We will bring all of the materials with us for your workshop. The exception to this is recycling. We can bring materials but we feel the collection is a valauble part of the process for the children
How Much is it?
