We are caught up in a consumer society with convenience being sold with the disposable products we now buy that can save us time in our lives. But their creation and disposal produces other impacts on the planet, what if things could be done differently?
Come join our introduction to “Inconvenience” workshop with ideas to “ditch the disposable and unplug”. Learn how to make everyday items for personal care and the home that can be washed and reused and reduce reliance on “throw away” items.
On this Inconvenience workshop you will have the opportunity to make washable face pads, a useful and unusual fold-away bag and beeswax wraps. There will be a cup of soup for lunch provided by way of a demonstration of Haybox cooking (retained heat) along with the opportunity to see and discuss the other items from the Inconvenience Stall.
Come and be inspired and let the imagination loose and see what you can produce for yourself at home to reduce our impact on the planet.
Please bring a packed lunch. A cup of vegetable soup will be provided.
Workshop Tutor: Cathy Streeter is the inspiration behind the Inconvenience Stall, an initative she has intoduced to the the People’s Market at Victoria Hall in Lampeter. On the 2nd and 4th Saturday’s of the month you can come along to the People’s Market where you can buy inconvenience products and pick Cathy’s brains for reducing your impact on the environment.
This workshop is suitable for all abilities, including beginners.
Places are limited to eight participants and must be booked in advance.
