Objective of the workshop:

During this 2 hour in-person workshop, teens & adults will up-cycle discarded plastic packaging into modern artwork using traditional quilting patterns and embroidery techniques.

Yes4us 4-step approach:


There is a disconnect between plastic’s lifespan and the fact that it's considered disposable. Plastic bags can take over 450 years to disintegrate, and yet we treat them as single-use disposable waste – normally a material with a long lifespan is seen as an asset, why isn’t this the case with plastic?


The goal is to switch mindsets - viewing plastic’s lifespan as a resource we can’t afford to waste. While we will have material available to choose from, we encourage you to bring in your own packaging to up-cycle! Heavy plastic bags are easiest to work with, but packaging from grocery items like pasta, nuts and crisps can often be used as well - be on the lookout for fun, colorful packaging to intercept on its way to the bin.


  • Learn to be mindful of how we use our resources and what we send to landfills


  • Learn a traditional appliqué sewing technique and create a unique artwork out of your waste
