Lead by Emma Parkins and Nansy Ferret Transition Belper will be holding a pop-up workshop at Belper Market Place on Saturday 21st May from 10.00 until 3.00 pm.
The public are invited to come along and try their hand at making some flowers from scrap to be added to the Bloomin’ Junk display at Belper Goes Green (4th and 5th June at Belper Rugby Club).
As part of Belper Goes Green we want a sea of recycled flowers to decorate the field – a reminder to people about how much waste is being thrown away. Flowers will be made from junk recycled objects and sustainable eco materials.
The project is being funded by the John Weston Charitable Fund through Foundation Derbyshire and has enabled workshops with the children of Herbert Strutt School, the Children’s Centre and Derbyshire Toy Libraries.
You can, of course, make your own flowers at home and bring them along to Belper Goes Green to add to the display or you can join the ongoing workshops in the crafts tent at the Festival itself. The more flowers we have the more colourful will be the scene.
