Sustainable Craft SWAP right here in darling Bendigo

Bendigo EcoLiving and the Bendigo Sustainability Group, with the support of La Trobe University Visual Arts Centre, and the City of Greater Bendigo are pleased to present Conversations for Change: Sustainable Craft Remaking Culture and inaugural Craft Swap.

This will be an evening of inspirational craft & its role in our sustainable future. Friday 20th August 7.30pm – 9.00pm La Trobe University Visual Arts Centre, 121 View Street, Bendigo.

The Inaugural Bendigo Sustainability Group Craft SWAP invites people to collect together their craft items that they no longer have a use for. The Craft Swap premise is to promote the reuse / recycling of items and promote sustainable craft, as well as having FUN.

How does it work? Collect a “Craft Swap Bag” from Make your House a Home 67 Williamson Street Bendigo – available NOW or alternatively contact Janine 54 100 585 to reserve your bag for the night.
Fill your bag up with the same type of crafting items (such as wool, fabric, paper etc) and bring along to the event Friday the 20th of August.

This is a free community event supporting local craft activity that is considerate of the environment, minimising waste and maximising fun.

Conversationalists for the night will evoke inspirational reinvestigation of traditional skills and how craft can replace our need for consumption and reduce our carbon foot print.
