Location: Institute of Making, Malet Place, UCL, London, WC1E 7JE Map

Plastics use has become a hot topic, but how much do we really know about this black sheep of the material world? Our next Saturday Extravaganza in October tackles plastics - discovering the miraculous material properties of this contentious group of materials; testing it physically with different hands-on making processes; unpicking the thorny issues of current plastics use, circular lifecycles and recycling processes; and taking a look at plastics' remarkable cultural history.

We will be taking over the street outside the Institute of Making, filling it with demonstrations and making stations. 

More details to come late-September, for now save the date on your diary and sign up to our mailing list to be the first to receive event updates and news.Free, open to all, drop in from 1pm, gates close at 5pm.
