Ecology Center Event

Woven Market Bag Workshop: Using Recycled Textiles and Plastics

Sunday | July 18, 2021 | 2:00 pm — 3:30 pm

Online Event

Do you save grocery bags? Most of us do. They pile up and we reuse them but the pile never seems to go down. We know they are harmful to the environment.

In this class you will learn how to make the ultimate recycled market bag from “plarn” using various sizes and colors of discarded plastic grocery bags. You can add your personal style to your market bag while creating a wholly functional, water resistant carry-all that you can show off at your weekly Farmers Market shopping adventure. By using these bags that will end up in landfill in waterways or in our oceans, you are helping to support the environment and our wildlife.

Judith Schonebaum is a popular functional textile art instructor in the Bay Area and beyond. She focuses on creating functional, decorative and wearable art from recycled textiles and plastic materials. She received her BA in Find Arts from the University of Vermont including attending an intensive folk art program at the Shelburne Museum.

You will be sent a material and tool list prior to the class.
