The Maker internship involves getting hands-on with our process and making beautiful objects out of flexible plastic waste. It could as be exciting as crafting one-off pieces or getting stuck-in marbling and pressing speakers. If you love working with your hands and learning cool ways to work with “non-recyclable” plastics. Then this is for you.
