Inserted in the context of the Plasticidade exhibition, developed by the Museum of Leiria, which presented us with an extensive and detailed history of the plastic cycle, the main goal of this workshop was to raise public awareness of the transformative capacity and the multiple forms of this material.

The workshop consisted of cutting used high density polyethylene objects into small pieces, then melting and fuse them in an oven into new objects, creating plates and moldable shapes.

These recycled plastic plates were then used as the base material for the participants’ creations, as covers for notepads, containers, among other small experimental objects.
