The Art of Packaging – Never Buy Another Vase!

Sat 10 February at 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


This workshop will inspire and develop ideas and techniques for transforming packaging materials into works of art.

It is designed for adults to explore individual ways to express their ideas and creativity in upcycling packaging materials. It encourages packaging materials to be viewed as a resource for home or office. Take home ideas on collecting, sorting and storing your recycled resources.

Learn about how ideas are formed, in order to direct your own original ideas towards an entry for the free local Waste 2 Art Community Competition and Exhibition. Entry deadline is May 6, 2024 for Bathurst region.

All tools and art materials will be supplied.

  • Please bring one or more articles of your favourite packaging.
  • An excess of other packaging will also be supplied.
  • Lunch

Cost for this event is $50 (members) and $55 (non-members)
