Washed Ashore Family Events At North Bend Library

You may have heard of “Washed Ashore”, which has a new exhibit in Bandon’s Old Town, and holds weekly workshops in Bandon’s Harbortown Event center on Saturdays from 2-5pm. Washed Ashore lets people make amazing art out of the plastic items that wash up on our beaches. Volunteers collect and sort the plastic, and help run workshops that transform garbage into art. In the process, people of all ages get to learn about what our plastics do to sea life, and what we can do about it.

On Saturday, April 6th and Sunday, April 7th at 2:00 both days, Washed Ashore is holding family events in the North Bend Public Library Meeting Room at 1800 Sherman Avenue. A short presentation will be followed by hands-on time making art (sorry, no take-homes: recycled plastics are safe to use with Washed Ashore volunteers, but are not safe in the home). Washed Ashore comes back to the North Bend Public Library on Tuesday, April 9th at 6:30pm to give a presentation for adults, teens and older kids about what happens to discarded plastic in the ocean, and the work and vision of Washed Ashore.

These events are free and open to the public. For more information, call the North Bend library at 756-0400, or visit www.northbendlibrary.org.
