Get creative at Boomerang Bags workshops!
08 Aug 2018

Plastic bags are out and sustainable bags are in! Local people are invited to do their bit for the environment by participating in a Boomerang Bags working bee and learning to make their own reusable, fabric shopping bags using recycled fabric.

 

Workshops will be held on the first Saturday of every month and everyone from beginners to sewing experts are welcome.

 

Boomerang Bags Deniliquin is an initiative of the Edward River Sustainability Group. This is an opportunity to join a sewing bee supported by Intereach Ability Links. Workshop participants can keep the bags they make, give them to family and friends or donate them to be sold at the Deniliquin Naponda Farmers Market. The proceeds from bag sales will go towards local sustainable living activities.

 

Intereach CEO Keryn Fox said, “This is a fantastic community initiative and a great opportunity for local people to come together to help build a clean, green and sustainable town. It’s also a chance for people to be creative, learn a new skill and use up those scraps of fabric that might otherwise go to waste.”

 

How can I get involved?

WHEN: First Saturday of each month, 1pm – 4pm

WHERE: Intereach Deniliquin Neighbourhood Centre, 78-80 Napier St

COST: FREE! Afternoon tea provided
