Its not often that you can talk rubbish all afternoon and still hold an audience captivated.  That’s exactly what Sandie Fonseca did on Saturday afternoon at Spearwood Library.

The audience was despondent at the beginning – after all the Dockers were losing –  but soon cheered up after seeing Sandie’s wonderful display of upcycled rubbish. There were plastic milk bottle light shades, tomato sauce container scoops, Christmas decorations with a difference, junk jewelry to mention a few.

The crowd upcycling their rubbish.

After a fun afternoon of learning how to recycle rubbish, beautiful decorative rubbish roses and covered can containers were proudly taken home as a reminder of the many ways we can re-use our rubbish.
