We need your help

September 17, 2007

We are currently looking for volunteers to come and help us with our project.

The first part of of what we are doing is cutting/ironing/sewing plastic bags to upcycle them into new objects. This process is time intensive and the more help we can get the better!

The second part of what we are doing is video interviews with people about there opinion on the use of plastic bags. These will become part of the video installation that is screened.

Things we need.
– more ironing boards and irons
– more sewing machines

These are times the installation is open and when you can come down to hang out and work with us on upcycling the bags.

The installation is located in a shipping container outside Sweet Mammas Kitchen at the end of Courtney Place, Wellington. Right now at night we have video projections going.

Tuesday 18th Sept (Tomorrow) – 11am – 7pm
Thursday 20th 4pm – 7pm
Saturday 22nd 11am – 6pm
Tuesday 25th 11am – 6pm

Another way you can help is upcycle your plastic bags at home and bring the finished product into us! What we are looking for is the squares of material that are produced once you have gone through the process of ironing the bag.

Check out this link to see how its done. Cheers
