Turn recycled items into art in this interactive workshop with Melbourne-based artist Georgina Humphries.
Kids will get hands on to transform single-use household items into new, useful objects using Georgina’s bright and kaleidoscopic style.
Through this session, Georgina will also explore the impact throw-away culture has on the environment and give kids the tools they need to recycle creatively at home.
This event is part of narrm ngarrgu | Melbourne Knowledge Week, 9 May – 15 May 2022, proudly presented by the City of Melbourne.
Pauline Gandel Children’s Quarter, supported by the Gandel Foundation, is a purpose-built space for children and families to read, learn and play, with an associated program of activities.
