WORKSHOPS

We offer a range of workshops for ages 3 - 103, all using recycled plastic waste donated by our amazing members of the public or by our local businesses. 

We use 3 different materials for our workshops, LDPE plastic bags, HDPE plastic lid bottles and PVC Vinyl banners. 

Below are examples of the workshops we do for each. This list is constantly being added to and we always encourage people to come to us with new ideas they want to try out! Everything is possible! 

Please email caitlin@plasticshed.org to enquire further.

POSTERS

HDPE
BOTTLE LIDS

Using our machines, based in our workshop space, we shred and melt this plastic into many different things! 

When melted HDPE becomes a runny liquid that can fit any mould, so if you can think of an item, it can be made from HDPE!
