Sailing Plastic

Do you believe that we can only find art in a museum or hanging from a gallery wall? Do you think that contemporary art is boring?


Would you like to meet an artist and create artwork together?

Making Art Happen has joined forces with the artist Maria Arceo and her project Thames Plastic to produce a unique family workshop.


Don’t miss it!


We will facilitate a series of thought-provoking and fun activities through the medium of a contemporary art project that uses the plastic rubbish found in the river Thames.


This workshop is only for children (and their parents/guardians) who love the river Thames. Tons of plastic waste travel through the river polluting the water. In this workshop children will discover these objects and transform them into artwork whilst raising eco awareness. Bring a t-shirt or tote bag and let’s spread the word!








Children aged 6-8 must be accompanied by an adult for this class. Over 8s may come with an adult or unaccompanied. If unaccompanied they MUST have a signed parent consent form in order to attend. This should be returned to the Box Office on booking and can be Downloaded here.


The workshop will take place at the Watermans Art Centre , 40 High St, Brentford TW8 0DS

on the 10th of August

from 10:30am to 1:30pm.

Price: £5
