Easter School Holiday Program 2017

  • We all know plastic bags are nasty for the environment but what if they could become funky fashion accessories instead? Come along and learn the art of soft plastic weaving with Fiona.

  • We’ll be swinging from the chandeliers for this workshop! We have collected lots of plastic bottles and containers which are ready to be turned into some amazing designs.
  • How would you like to create your very own origami wall piece for your room? We have lots of coloured paper and great design ideas just waiting for some creative kids.
  • In keeping with our Waste 2 Art theme, This workshop will test your ideas on what an empty bottle can become. Could it be a cute critter or a hungry predator from the sea?
  • String art is very popular on Pinterest and Etsy at the moment and it’s not too tricky to learn. Come along to this workshop and Emma will teach you how to create your very own string art.
  • Bathurst Regional Council (BRC), Sims Metal Management and NetWaste are proud to present the Waste 2 Art Community Art Exhibition. BRAG is working with BRC these holidays to deliver 3 recycling based workshops: Soft Plastic Creations, Crazy Chandeliers & Plastic Sculptures. The theme for the 2017 is “plastic bags” however, artworks can be made from any recyclable materials. Further information about Waste 2 Art is available at
