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

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.

Oh fantastic! I'm Euro-trash and will fit in perfectly.
Go easy on the tetanus but Foot-and-Mouth is a good idea to protect against.

I don't have my shot records, but I'm up to date. Will a note from my mum be okay?
