Chapter 2 – Theoretical Frame of Circular Economy Education, Plastic Craftwork and Tinkering
About Lesson


Plastic craftwork involves the creative and artistic use of plastic materials, particularly recycled plastics, to produce a wide range of items. Craftsmen and artists transform discarded plastic objects or waste into new, often aesthetically pleasing, and functional products. This can include anything from sculptures and jewellery to furniture and household items.

Plastic craftwork not only showcases artistic talent but also contributes to sustainability by diverting plastic waste from landfills and raising awareness about the environmental impact of plastic consumption. Teaching adults plastic craftwork has several benefits, both from a personal and societal perspective.
