Re: Cycle Workshop Series Closes – Mini Report

At Kino Šiška we have wrapped-up the series of our two-day creative recycling workshops led by Petra Gosenca and Jurij Bobič of the GUMB Association for Fostering Creative Thinking and Living. 45 participants ages from 15 to 40 were exploring how various waste materials (usually labelled rubbish) can be reused creatively to make a series of unique and individual creations, the value of which is in being usable as well as aesthetic and communicative.

Workshops were based on the DIY principle. By means of collecting and reusing waste materials creatively, this educational, ecological and ethical design project seeks alternative options to solve the issue of waste and the polluted living environment, while also encouraging individuals towards a positive attitude to recycling as well as ecologically responsible and engaged conduct.

At the first of the workshops in April, participants were using scrap cardboard packaging and paper to make elaborate chandeliers of various shapes and sizes that can embellish any kind of room. The workshops in May were dedicated to creative remake and reuse of waste cycling inner tubes, resulting in durable, water resistant and handy bags for everyday use. The two-day recycling workshop in June saw the participants use scrap cardboard to make useful and complex items of furniture of diverse sizes.
