Nothing says Christmas like sparkle. But glittery wrapping paper, tinsel, baubles and crackers are all made of plastic which breaks down over time to form micro- and then nano-plastics, which we breath in, eat and release to the environment.
Join artist Sarah Taylor Silverwood and make your own Christmas wrapping paper using environmentally friendly materials. Everyone will take away a roll of their own paper at the end of the session ready to use this Christmas.
This workshop is presented as part of The Air We Breathe, a brand new public progamme at The Exchange bringing together cutting edge research from across the University of Birmingham. From a hydrogen train to a sci-fi forest, discover how the University is delivering clean air both here in Birmingham and around the world.
