From 11 AM to 3 PM workshop for children "Eco-friendly school book covers"
School time is here and one of the first homework for children and parents is to cover and protect books. Association "homo ecos" invites not to buy new plastic caps, but to make them yourself!
At the workshop, participants will learn how to make individual book covers from what can be found at home: wallpaper and cloth cuttings, shopping bags (paper and plastic). The old magazines and calendars will be used for decoration. Such books will have another value. All materials will be available in the workshop, but you can bring your own materials for decoration. And do not forget the books!
The workshop is organised by Kalnciema Quarter in cooperation with the association "homo ecos" and support of Riga City Council.
