Our objective is to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the world of artisanal plastic recycling and assist them in creating their first product.
The workshop will start with an introduction to experimental plastic recycling, as well as to plastics and their recycling processes by members of the Precious Plastic Vienna association. We will then put the different processing techniques into practice. While doing this, we’ll discuss the possible new and useful applications of recycled plastic in the field of design, fashion and art.
All materials and machines are provided: These include cleaned plastic waste from various sources, recycling granules and homemade plastic flakes, a homemade open source machine for shredding plastic waste, a hand-operated injection moulding machine, a furnace for melting, a press for making sheets, and many hand tools for processing plastic parts.
