    Going Nova have been awarded a grant to support their project designed to give a longlasting boost to upcycling of waste plastic and discarded fabric in Moray.

    Creative Opportunities from Waste will educate attitudes, values and skills directly through 20 workshops, given free to participants and delivered in association with local organisations and community groups. The workshops will demonstrate techniques of upcycling – creatively turning waste plastic, discarded fabric and used bicycle tyre tubes into items of beauty and value, and particularly upcycling discarded fabric into fashionable items of clothing.

    The funding will be used to purchase the equipment necessary to deliver the project, including 3D printing pens and heat guns, as well as supporting the recruitment of a team of creative delivery staff.
