Play your part in Plastic-Free July in our Design-a-Bag Workshop.
Time : 10:30am - 12pm
Suitable for ages : 10+
This workshop will be held : on-site at the Islamic Museum of Australia
Plastic-Free July is a global movement aimed at reducing the use of single-use plastic, and what better way to contribute than by decorating your own reusable bag. During this workshop, you will have the opportunity to personalise a 100% cotton tote bag with a painted Islamic-inspired design.
Environmental sustainability is a fundamental concept in Islam. Muslims believe the earth is a sacred trust given to humanity by Allah (God), and that it is the responsibility of humans to act as stewards of the earth and to care for it. This deep connection between environmental sustainability and Islam is reflected in many of the teachings and practices of the religion, and is a guiding principle for Muslims around the world in their daily lives.
Our experienced facilitator will guide you through the process and provide you with tips and tricks on how to paint a beautiful Islamic-inspired design on your bag. At the end of the workshop, you will have a unique tote bag that you can use day-to-day, on trips to the beach, or any other occasion. You will also have the satisfaction of knowing that you have made a positive impact on the environment by reducing your use of single-use plastics.
This workshop is open to children aged 10+ of all backgrounds and skill levels. Whether you are a pro painter or a beginner when it comes to brushes, you'll be supported every step of the way in painting on your own tote bag.
Join us for this exciting workshop and be a part of the movement towards a cleaner and more sustainable world. Register now, and let's design some beautiful and eco-friendly bags together!
