A community art project has been launched in the run-up to a summer festival to highlight the fashion industry’s impact on the environment.
Free weekly workshops started this week as part of the Thetford River Festival on July 20.
Thetford residents can make underwater creatures out of unwanted socks and clothes, or turn plastic bottles into jellyfish and water plants. The creatures will be part of an installation at the Riverdale Centre walled garden, and can be delivered to the Carnegie Rooms.
It is a pilot project by Get On The Soap Box and Thetford Town Council as part of the Brecks Fen edge and Rivers Landscape Partnership Scheme.
The workshops will take place on Tuesdays at The Guildhall Tearoom, and Thursdays at Riversdale from 10.30am until 12.30pm.
