Junk to Gems for Teens: Plastic Projects

Junk to Gems for Teens: Plastic Projects

Learn how to make necklaces, earrings, bracelets, rings and carabiners from recycled materials. Participants in this class will learn to safely use our injection machine to create accessories from community collected #2 and #5 plastic. 

What to Know Before Registering

Safety is the highest priority in this class. Please wear long pants, closed toe shoes and secure long hair. During this class participants will be required to wear an organic vapor half face respirator mask with activated carbon filters to protect from harmful fumes while melting plastic. Mask usage is not optional during melting and participants who will not wear their mask will be asked to leave without a refund.

Please note that if after several redirections from the instructor, your youth is struggling to maintain appropriate behaviors, remain engaged with the class activities or is compromising the safety of themselves or others we will contact you to pick them up before the end of class.  No refunds will be given in this instance.
