Institute of Making Public Open Day: Plastics
A one day event held by The Institute of Making on the role of plastics in the material world.
Saturday 27 October 2018 1:00pm - 5:00pm
Plastics use has become a hot topic, but how much do we really know about this black sheep of the material world? This event will tackle the topic of plastics - discovering the miraculous material properties of this contentious group of materials; testing it physically with different hands-on making processes; unpicking the thorny issues of current plastics use, circular lifecycles and recycling processes; and taking a look at plastics' remarkable cultural history.
