Delivered my first workshop at The Making House yesterday. Returned to Abbot Beyne, my old school for the first time in, (hmmm, can it really be that long ago?), 22 years to deliver a plastic recycling workshop with a group of year 9 students. Most of the lads were a little suspicious at first, but in the end we had a busy and good session, where everyone managed to make something to take home with them as well as trying to get home the reasons for reducing plastic waste. My first series of school workshops is with a small group of girls from The Beyne to do a jewellery making and enterprise project, a very promising start where they did and made a lot more than I expected, by the end of the session they’d got the hang of some basic wire techniques.
