Rockingham recycles for Christmas crafts

November 27, 2017 by  

Environmentally conscious residents of Rockingham can participate in a workshop to create Christmas decorations from recycled items.

Rockingham has long prided itself on looking after the environment and effectively recycling its unwanted items. The local library is supportive of this quest, and those who attend this free workshop will be able to make tree ornaments from a variety of recyclable materials.

Attendees will also discover new ways to use old books that can no longer be read. Inventive paper-folding will enable these to be turned into decorations or artworks, showing that traditional printing services, once having served their original purpose, can still be utilised to create something that is both meaningful and decorative. Enterprising organisations could use such items as seasonal corporate gifts.

Participants in the workshop will be able to create their own decorations, as well as contributing one to the library’s Christmas tree. This will have its lights switched on after the workshop, at 6:00 pm. The Mandurah Concert Band will perform Christmas Carols and a light supper will be provided.

The recycled crafts workshop is suitable for adults and seniors, as well as younger participants, and will take place on Friday, December 8, from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm in the Rockingham Central Library, Dixon Road. The library’s Christmas tree event – also free – will take place from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm on the same day.
