Sunday 14 July, 2:00pm-5:00pmPlastic Playgroup (DoES Workshop)
In a world with mountains of plastic and molehills of play, let’s get our spades out and shift the balance.Make new things from abandoned plastic with us. Plantpots, purses … pedalos?Shred plastic. Blend it. Meld scraps together with a heat gun. Make sheets. Laser cut it. CNC it. Stitch potato bags together with soldering iron? Make fabrics with a regular iron? What have we got, what can we make? We don’t know – let’s figure it out!Two rules: 1. No Objectives – this is an aimless and wandering session.2. Bring Your Own Initiative – this is an active session and we’ll help you get creative.
Every two weeks on a Sunday afternoon, between 2pm and 5pm.Facilitated by Plastic Tactics – follow on social for the latest updates, and to see what we make if you can’t be here in person:

She says “I’m chuffed to bits to have won office space with DoEs, it will help me so much to keep on track with all with the inevitable admin, I’m way too distracted at home, so I’m looking forward to being a lot more productive and focused. I run a little CIC called Fem de la Femme in which I run comedy events, projects and workshops for women. Recently Its been starting to really gather momentum, which is fabulous so the timing of Joining DoEs is perfect I’m also looking forward to meeting other like mind folks running their own businesses and making their own little mark on the world”
