About the Workshop

Marine debris litters the shoreline of our beaches and lakes. Our waste has devastating effects on our animals, our health and the planet.

This workshop unleashes your playful creativity to create something extraordinary and beautiful from waste.

Foraged marine debris and discarded waste are sources of inspiration for creating something new from what we already have around us.

All materials and tools are provided. The workshop is facilitated by an experienced educator and artist who will help your ideas materialise. Skills learned in this workshop can then be used in your own time, away from CoastLife Fest!

This workshop is designed for older teens and adults. With facilitator guidance, a range of tools and equipment that require precision, skill and are sharp will be used.

At the Creating Art from Marine Debris workshop, you will:

  • Create something that’s individually yours, using marine debris and clean household and industrial waste
  • Let play, spontaneity, creativity and imperfection guide your project
  • Use a range of tools and techniques to create your masterpiece, without relying on sticky tape and glue
