Plasticiser Foundry is an environment that consists of creative, flexible workshop spaces exploring and experimenting with alternative uses for the plastic waste abundantly found in and around the site of Cody Dock. Recycling, reforming, repurposing and reusing are the very processes of making and transforming the plastic waste into newly formed products such as homeware, furniture and wearable accessories, encouraging new forms of economy within the Cody Dock community. This local intervention could offer alternative solutions for the increasing global plastic crisis beginning at a hyperlocal scale.
The Plasticiser Foundry is comprised of flexible open-plan spaces, using existing combined containers, which are designed to engage and encourage links between upskilling the local community and the valuable resources the site offers. Using various types of plastics the Plasticiser Foundry programme creates transparent to opaque, geometric and fluid forms creating a wide range of uses within the interior space using a single material.
