Fused Plastic Upcycling Workshop:

Good morning!
I have been tossing around the idea of hosting and teaching some up cycling workshops in the new year. I am putting this out there to see if there is any interest. If you live in the Okanagan area (B.C. Canada), and you have a interest in ways to reuse some daily products, this might interest you. I am looking at ways to recycle plastic bags, grocery, chip bags, any plastic bag. You would learn how to turn them into a reusable material that could be then used like a fabric. This new fused plastic can be sewn together to make many useful items. Below is a wonderful video, and well worth the watch. Grab a cup of tea and curl up and check it out. This video inspired me to want to do something. I am looking forward to some feedback on this.
I would also like to teach some other workshops on up cycling in the new year, do you have any suggestions of what you would like to see? I like to stick to mostly clothing and fashion, but hey who knows. The attached photos I found on line, they are shown as a example of could be made.
