Join us for an inspiring winter vacation day at The Museum of Technology in Muoviamo’s plastic upcycling workshop!

In this plastic upcycling workshop, you’ll learn how to create items from plastic bags and bottles. The workshop is an opportunity to explore creative recycling and acquire skills you can use at home.

You can create items like a wallet, a small bag, a storage container, jewelry, a lampshade, window decorations, or your own artwork. You can also invent new ways to upcycle plastic! After the workshop, you can take your creations home.
