Art for Social Change Craft Workshops – Cardboard and Excess Packaging

Add to Calendar Burke Museum
Sat., Feb. 23, 2013 | 10 am – 2 pm
Included with museum admission; FREE for Burke members

with Zero Waste Seattle and Art for Social Change

Everyone is invited to join the fun and help build a kid-friendly giant trash monster out of recycled materials.   Meet the Bag Monster at 10 am and at 12:30 pm when this Yeti-like creature (see photo) makes a rare appearance to help us discover ways we can decrease our negative impact on the planet.   And then go to the Fremont Solstice Parade and see your creation come to life!

 Please bring used cardboard packaging and other used packaging materials  – we will also have plenty on hand.  Excessive packaging is one of the largest sources of trash from our homes.  Zero Waste Seattle is the community group that works on the various ordinances in Seattle about reducing plastic bags and Styrofoam food containers, opting-out of phonebooks, and other recycling and waste reduction efforts. We do our work primarily by making large movable art creatures.  Our goal is to have fun!
