Re-purpose Grain Bags Into Usable Totes with Sarah May

May 5th

Cost : $30.00 CSArt Members
$35.00 Non-Members

If you own animals, whether they're chickens, dogs, goats, etc, you may have noticed the relatively recent transition in feed bags from paper to plastic. While they're better for the company due to less damage and loss, they're worse for the environment. No longer can these bags be recycled, composted, or burned. The plastic versions are now headed straight to the landfill because there are no local transfer stations that are equipped... to properly recycle these bags. However, this makes them GREAT candidates for repurposing!

Let's turn those empty feed bags into durable shopping totes!

Please bring with you:
Scissors suitable for cutting woven plastic (Some will be available)

A sewing machine you're comfortable using (some will be provided on a first come first served basis)

Medium Weight Woven Needles (some will be available for use)

A clean bag with imagery of your choice (optional)
Polyester Thread to go with bag (optional)

What will be provided:
Clean feed bags of assorted images to choose from (one per person for class, extras will be available for sale/trade after class)

Handle options

Polyester thread of assorted colors

Bring a snack to share : ) Coffee & Tea will be provided!
