In September 2015 me and my colleague Joaquina were invited to the Potsdamer Umweltfest to do an upcycling workshop with plastic bags. A lot of kids and parents participated and made all kinds of colorful products out of the plastic bags.
In August 2015 Kunst-Stoffe was invited to give an upcycling workshop for the “Tag der offenen Tür” in the Bundeskanzleramt. In the workshop we built musical instruments out of waste material brought from the Kunst-Stoffe Lager.
We also built a smaller stage with a microphone, two loudspeakers and D.I.Y amplifiers, where the kids could play with their new, self-made instruments.
In August 2014 Julia Otten from Germanwatch e.V. organized a two day event about throw away society and about local initiatives fighting it. They made a visit to my atelier where I talked about the Repair Café as a strategy against planned obsolescence and the growing amount of electrical waste.
