Full Craftsterland Announcement here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=377142.0

Class: Treasure from Trash
Teachers: PixieVal
Location: Craftster Compound, back lot
Class Size: 17 students
Class Description:
Class is perfect for the experienced and newcomer to upcycling crafts alike! We will be creating whatever your heart desires from items otherwise to take up space in a landfill! I know that Recycling, reusing, reclaiming, repurposing, upcycling and reconstructing is close to many Craftsters hearts.
I have taught this class on my own several times locally, and so many beautiful things are made from trash! Some examples of items well be making: couches, clothing, decorative items, planters, artwork, dolls, baby blankets, shoes, jewelry, wine, flatware, and many many more!
Cost:  Free!

What to Bring:
2 30 gallon bags of trash(biodegradable please. If we cant use you trash, we want to be able to feed it to the Craftster compound goats)

13 cans of extra strength aerosol hairspray(prevents trash from degrading)
Surgical FaceMask
Heavy Work Boots(steel toe is best)
Protective Eye Gear (rhinestones encouraged!)
Heavy Work Gloves elbow length
Knee pads
Elbow pads
Underwear
4 cans of deodorant

Optional
Mini Air Freshener (for inside your mask) *optional*
Shot Records (tetanus shot recommended, but not required)
Hazmat Suit

 
Craftster not responsible for bacteria or diseases in trash used in crafting. Not responsible for injuries, cuts bruises or scraps. Not responsible for any ugly hideous or smelly treasures resulting from crafting with trash. Not responsible for crafts disappearing over a period of time due to biodegradability of supplies. Not responsibility for hazards. Craftster instructor will provide peroxide, rubbing alcohol and baindaides. Because of insurance reasons residents of NJ, OR, PA, and WY over the age of 43 will be responsible for their own first-aide kits. Unless where resident is born before, on or after October 14, and during the hour of 7PM zoolu time on August 3. Not permitted to attend if you are pregnant or drunk, or both.

You can purchase from most government agencies, or a little known fact... You can use a Halloween Hazmat suit costume with the same protection!

Sign me up! So, when you say underwear, do you mean mine? Cause my male model is willing to give his up for the cause.

Sign me up, please!  I've already got my rhinestone encrusted goggles ready to go!  I have a question, though.  Does it have to be our OWN trash, or can we raid a couple dumpsters on the way?

I'm thinking about this, and would love to hear everyone's opinions!

I personally think it would be best to use only your own trash, that way you can get used to crafting with what supplies will normally be in your trash can.
But for those of you who already have goats, you may need to raid other dumpsters!

I understand completely, PixieVal.  I'm sure if I try hard enough, getting that much trash together won't take long at all!

Just make sure to keep spraying it with extra hold hairspray so it doesn't decompose!

Why is this thread called Trash to Treasure? Is it misposted?  Should I move it to cooking?

I am so confused today.

I never read fine print. It's usually not important.

I was so excited about this at first, but I draw the line at wearing underwear. Too bad.

But I would like to point out that if you make a couch with your trash you can sign up for that other class to upholster it. It's nice to see that the classes can carry over.

You don't have to wear underwear if you don't want to. Additional pairs of underwear are recommended if you are an underwear wearer
