Making Circles

We firmly believe that education is key to growing the Circular Economy, so Ostrero has developed Making Circles, a creative learning project that takes professional craftspeople into schools to deliver a hands-on Circular Economy Design Challenge. This year Making Circles has worked with schools from Dumfriesshire to the Highlands. A selection of designs and photos from the workshops are on display in the Learning Centre at the National Museum of Scotland from 1st June- 31st July 2019.

Making Circles has been created in collaboration with teachers and offers a creative learning opportunity that ties in with the heart of the Curriculum for Excellence.
