Volunteers from all walks of life get together to make re-useable fabric "Boomerang Bags" using recycled materials, to provide a sustainable alternative to plastic bags. The bags are given away to friends, family, colleagues, bagless strangers and so on, as a plastic bag alternative that can be used and reused, or passed on to others in need. The bags create a platform to start conversations, make friends, up-cycle materials and work towards shifting society’s throw away mentality to a more sustainable revolution of re-use – one community, needle and thread at a time! Thanks to wonderful donations from the local community, all materials are provided. BYO sewing machine if you would like to help out by sewing. No experience necessary, experienced sewists are available to help you if you are just starting out! Plenty of things for non-sewists to do as well.
Come & join us for CONNECT 4 CRAFT @ BERTRAM that meet every Friday for a casual craft session from 10am til 1pm through school term. Bring along your own project or just pop in to be inspired by what others are doing & join us for a cuppa & chat. Inger will be there to welcome you and we always have 5D Diamond Painting Kits on hand for anyone who wants to try something new . . . but be warned it's addictive - in the nicest possible way. As you enter the foyer go left then left up the passage and you'll probably hear us in the room on the end before you see us. This is a FREE EVENT and we look forward to seeing you there.
