Waste of our Time: an exhibition of artworks made from recycled plastics

Watch the making of ‘Waste of our Time’, an exhibition produced by local environmental artists Judy Harrington and Kate Crawfurd for Preventing Plastic Pollution.

Using Dreamcatchers to capture thoughts and ideas about plastic pollution, which were hand made by community members, helped engage and raise awareness of the plastic problem. The final installation included sculptures such as a huge REFUSE bin stacked with waste of different generations, ammonite fossils made from milk bottles, inspirational posters from children and plastic packaging bodies were created using locally sourced recycled materials.
