Waste is to become a beautiful community art piece in February 2022. We invite community members of all ages to learn how to turn fabric waste into blossoms and butterflies. These items will then be attached to a quilt wall hanging made by North of the Yarra Quilters Guild. Quilted wall hanging will be available to loan and display within Nillumbik shire. Made by the community for the community.
For generations children around the world have been playing with bean bags. They can be found at most schools and are really handy items to have around the home.
But we’ve made a couple of improvements to them.
First we have made ours from textile waste to help reduce the epic problem there is world wide. The statics in 2021 is that about 6 tonnes of textiles is sent to landfill every ten minutes in Australia. Which is equal to 31 kilograms per person every year.
Secondly we added lavender so that as they are being moved around the calming scent wafts through the room.
What are you waiting for?
Get your bean bags today!
