Our popular ocean recycling workshop led on from a beach clean on Saunton Beach with a group of Outdoor Swimmers. Sarah and Jane then cleaned through all the waste to recycle cans, bottles keeping back interesting items, plastics, nets and rope. So rather than heading to landfill, sarah created boxes of found material which were then used in the two workshops,
Beach cleaners could then chose items that they could then incorporate into useful and/or decorative items with the found materials.
This is a selection of what are crafters made in just a couple of hours. It was great to be able to meet in person and talk with each other, something we had missed since lockdown, and seeing Unit6 hosting the event in a Covid Safe environment gave off a feeling of energy and hope for the future.
