We will be running a vaguely Christmas themed beginners rag rugging workshop at The Bleachingfield Centre (see location map below) on behalf of Zero Waste Dunbar on Saturday 26th November. The Christmas theme is optional and people are free to make whatever they wish, but we thought it might be nice to do something a bit festive with the big day being so close.
Rag rugging is a great way of recycling/upcycling old fabrics and clothing to make beautiful objects for yourself, your home or presents for other people. If you've got any fabrics or old clothing you'd like to use at the workshop then please bring them along. But if you haven't got anything to bring, don't worry as we will bring a big stash of materials and will provide everything you need on the day. including homemade cake and hot drinks.
The workshop costs £40 per person and runs from 10 am until 3.30 pm, with a 30 minute break for lunch (lunch not included.) Booking is essential as there are only 16 places available.
To book please send a £10 deposit for each person (cheques made payable to Jane Jackson), along with your contact details to Jane Jackson 5, Rock Village. Alnwick. Northumberland NE66 3SD.
Dunbar is the first community to become a Zero Waste Town as part of a new programme from Zero Waste Scotland. In this programme a Zero Waste Town is a community of between 5000 and 10,000 people where there is a concentrated drive of activity to test how increased recycling activity and greater local resource efficiency can help to achieve zero waste. The Zero Waste Towns will be supported by Zero Waste Scotland to boost activities including recycling from both households and businesses, rolling out food waste collections, increasing ‘recycling on the go’ facilities and working with businesses to help them reduce their use of resources.
