People against Plastic at Ballymaloe!
Well can't believe its been a week since bringing our Single Use Plastic Photobooth to Ballymaloe!
Not only did we get to play with the general public but our single use plastic headdresses were one of the highlights of the sustainable fashion show and I was invited to speak about them while the models strutted their stuff!
A thoroughly enjoyable weekend and thanks to Helene Wallhoran, Rory Allen and all at Ballymaloe for inviting us and also for highlighting sustainability at their Christmas fair!
Well after a busy weekend with our Photobooth at Ballymaloe Sustainable Living Festival (pics yet to come).... it was great to to be invited to Cork Life Centre as their visiting artist for "One World Week" - especially as this year's theme is Activism and the Sustainable Development Goals. I worked with a great bunch of teenagers and together we crafted some amazing new headdresses whilst discussing our plastic usage and ways to reduce it. We opened up Nescafe Gusto capsules and found 4 more layers of plastic inside each capsule that we weren't aware of - scary stuff indeed!! Wonderful energy with these teens and a great learning experience all round. Big thanks to Helen O' Keeffe (art teacher) and all the staff at Cork Life Centre for their support.
We have been invited by Ballymaloe Sustainable Living Festival to bring our 'People Against Plastic' campaign as part of their Christmas Craft Fair.
If you are in the neighbourhood, do drop in and say hello and have your portrait taken..
