Exhibition across four different locations illustrating some of the many ways designers, makers and artists are tackling our plastic waste problem.
10 November – 18 November 2018. Friars Walk, Lewes (map)
Waste plastic is an environmental disaster globally. It spills upon and infiltrates the sea. It suffocates the wave, strangles the shore, and shrouds the beach.
Making Lewes has brought together artists, designers, and like-minded makers, whose shared need makes manipulating recycled resource material a necessity, and who by compulsion force the transition.
In this exhibition Making Lewes aims to illustrate alternative progressive solutions to the plastics waste issue. To move this on from debate to action. To help, repair – mend – reconcile.
