Boomerang Bags Geraldton | Activity and Awareness Session

Past Event

💚 What better way to start the new year, than learning some new life-long skills that will save the environment 💚

The Geraldton Regional Art Gallery invites you to Boomerang Bags Geraldton's Community Activity and Awareness Session. The Boomerang Bags team will be at the Gallery from 10:30-2:00 with information and handy tips to reduce plastic use in your everyday life.

The day's activities will include:
♻️ how to fold a newspaper bin liner
♻️ how to make fabric twine session from material scraps
♻️ how to make a no-sew T-shirt bag

See you there!

Boomerang Bags is a global initiative that calls upon the community – schools, sewing groups, universities, community organisations, councils, businesses - to collect fabric and help us turn it into bags. Workshops and sewing bees have become a valuable platform to connect with each other, share stories, divert waste from landfill, learn new skills, raise awareness about important issues (not just plastic!) and have fun.
