Repurpose unwanted plastic bags to weave beds for the homeless!
Learn basic weaving and learn about the Sleep Well Project run by the Carers of Africa.
In the Sleep Well Project, plastic bags donated by business that shut down, are cut into strips and weaved into mats and pillows for the homeless that are durable, weather resistant, and extremely mobile.
A great workshop for learning and giving from the heart.
Note: For schools and community groups, we can come over with the necessary material and tools and run the program at your venue.
