Baling twine, a strong polyethylene string used to bind bales of hay, can’t be recycled in NSW, which means that it ends up in landfill.
The twine used in Stringdom was collected from dairy and cattle farms in the Hastings region of NSW. Using over 4km of twine, kids weave in space to create a structure that might become a chamber, a maze, or an architectural wonder.
Waste will be a golden opportunity for the designers of the future, and design thinking starts with play. So…. start experimenting!
