9 - Christmas Wrapping Paper

Christmas Wrapping

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.
