PLASTIC waste will get a new lease of life in Albury during the school holidays.
MAMA will host a free children’s workshop Plastic Fantastic! on January 18.
MAMA public programs officer Sophie Holvast said children aged 7 to 12 could get creative with plastic waste and make a mini version of Plastic Palace, the 6-metre-tall art installation in QEII Square.
She said they could use the plastic waste on hand or bring their own collected over the holidays such as prizes from party bags and bon bons, fast food toys, 2019 New Year’s novelty glasses and other clean plastics.
“We’re taking a different approach to plastic by considering re-using it,” she said.
“The workshop is extending from Plastic Palace.”
