Workshop Description: Here’s a creative way to help clean up our planet: make art from single-use plastic bags. Collect them for a few weeks and you’ll discover a myriad of colours, thicknesses, patterns and textures available to you. With Natalya's guidance, you’ll make art inspired by nature from the plastic bags you’ve gathered. Natalya will show you how to prepare the plastic, cut it and stitch it by hand and machine. You will experiment with different types of stitching and finishes, and create an artwork like no other.
a collection of single-use plastic (various colours, sizes, thicknesses and patterns; from bags to bulk item wrapping to supermarket packaging)
sewing machine (no need for special needles)
sharp paper scissors

base material. My preferred material which is Pellon 70 Peltex Ultra Firm Sew-In Interfacing, it is 20” wide. It can be bought at Jo-Ann Fabrics or maybe your local quilt store. Any similar interfacing is acceptable.
