Craft Workshop: Upcycled Zipper Pouch Workshop with Up & Away

Photo Credits: Up & Away

We had a fabulous time last month with the very energetic upcycling team - Up & Away. They are a group of four undergraduate students from NTU; passionate about doing their part to spread the message about caring for the environment through upcycling - where trash is turned into treasure.

We conducted an upcycling workshop - sharing how we can turn used food packaging into attractive hand made zipper pouches. The children had lots of fun snipping and stapling away, as they transformed packaging which they usually discard, into their work of creation, with some help from their parents.
