Waste Stories workshop

Do you worry about waste? Do you care about our coasts? Do you like making stuff up? If your answer to any of these is yes, then join us for a Waste Stories workshop. We’re running two of these creative story workshops to accompany the Solway Hoard exhibition.

Waste is one of our biggest challenges. The waste we produce – and the ways we dispose of it – pollutes our environment and gobbles up energy. A lot of the time we can ignore it, but a visit to some of Scotland’s western and southern shores can remind us how much of the rubbish we produce ends up in our seas, how far it can travel and how long it can last.

We know we need to do something, but people can often feel powerless. Stories can change that, by helping us to see things in new ways and from new angles. Our Solway Hoard Waste Stories workshops invite you to take a different look at objects that have washed up on our beaches from the perspective of alternative pasts and futures. It’s time we got creative, reduced our trash and turned it into treasure. So come along, look at some bits of rubbish and make some stuff up!
