Plastic bags. Everyone has a stash of them. Turn yours into something beautiful! Plastic grocery bags are not always recyclable. A better alternative is to upcycle them into stylish and practical items you can use around the home.
Join Cara Corey, a maker on a mission to lessen waste and have fun doing it, will teach students this fun skill to use again and again, as we all know there is an unlimited supply of materials!
You will learn how to turn plastic bags into “plarn” -plastic yarn-that you can crochet with, just like regular yarn. Experimentation is encouraged. You can create this simple storage basket during the class and use any extra time to work on other items. Plarn is great for dish scrubbers, bags, baskets, rugs and more.
Students to bring:
- 10 regular size or larger plastic bags. The larger the better!
- Optional but encouraged: Size J/10 crochet hooks.
Our Location: Marine Elementary School, 550 Pine St., Marine on St. Croix, MN 55047
