Turn waste into wearables

You’ve got time at home and wondering what to do … You’ve got old T-shirts, once loved … or some milk containers and plastic bottles to throw away and bubble wrap from purchases is piling up. You want to try a new look but the shops are shut … Or you just want to be creative and try something new.

We have the solution. Our online upcycling classes demonstrate creative ideas in how to breathe new life into pre-loved and discarded materials.

Why not try to make some modern contemporary jewellery out of plastic, or a macramé bag from a T-shirt?

Start today – and join us on this creative journey. In this first class we show how to turn your pre-loved T-shirt into yarn and braid it into a bracelet.

From pre-loved T-shirts into newly-loved Bracelets

During the present pandemic the Going Nova team are moving their upcycling workshops to online delivery. This is your opportunity to join a series of workshops around creative opportunities from waste. This first online class in the series transforms pre-loved T-shirts into newly-loved bracelets.

Project supported by Moray LEADER.
