Lou's Upcycles

Tuesday, March 7, 2017
2:00 pm-4:30 pm
Newton Free Library, 330 Homer St., Newton Centre

Participants will learn about upcycling plastic bags through the process of fusing, and use fusing to make a project.  Using the heat and pressure of a household iron, a new type of textile is formed from un-recyclable plastic bags and wrappers that would usually be thrown away. This 101 class teaches the basics of plastic bag fusing and each participant will complete a final project using the fused textile. For kids in grades 3-4.  Space is limited.  Please pick up a ticket at the  desk in the children's room starting half an hour before the program begins. You are welcome to save up plastic bags and wrappers to bring to the program to use or donate.  Guidelines can be found at  http://www.lousupcycles.com/donate-recycle-upcycle/.  Snow day date is 3/14.
