Intro to the Project

The Such Initiative Plastic Bottle Top Mosaic project started during the world cup in 8 community centres in Johannesburg. The intention of the project was to keep children busy during this time world cup period with an eco conscious art project.

The children in these 8 community centres were invited to participate and in return they learn about art, recycling and a more eco-conscious way of living. They were also invited to Arts Alive cultural day, which is when the unveiling of the final artwork will take place.

Towards the end of the holidays we wanted to speed up the weaving process, so through word of mouth referrals we gathered group of about 20 embroidery weavers to come and work at the Such studio every day. See ‘Studio Weavers’ for more info.
