What you see here is actually our trash. At last year’s Dutch Design Week (DDW) some 250.000 visitors generated a lot of waste! Such as thousands of wristband leftovers (used for entry tickets). These colorful / wonderful wristbands are made of polyester and can be transformed in many ways (by weaving, melting, shredding, felting, sewing, joining, etc.) into something new…
If you have an idea to reuse these wristbands in mind (?) please sketch your idea and send it to make(at)burg-halle.de

Used truck tarps are too good to be wasted. This PVC-based material is made to last and can be transformed into almost anything by punching, sewing, cutting, weaving, heat-welding and more. MAKE. invites you to give this material a second life! Used tarp sheets are freely available for BURG students as long as our stock lasts. Supported by: FREITAG
– When: Wednesday 2.12.2015 from 14:00
– Where: BURG MATERIAL (Mediathek, 1st floor)
Material of the Month is an ongoing project where MAKE. provides a selected material for student projects. The material is freely available for all BURG students as long as our stock lasts. The only condition for participation is to return a visual documentation, so we can share the ideas and experiments that have been done with the sponsored material.
