Plastic Age

The Plastic Age: Under the Microscope



Sunday 7th November

Workshops: 12pm & 2pm

UPDATE: Due to unforeseen circumstances this event is now cancelled.


We’re excited to host Terra Attune CIC at Studio Pavilion with their installation The Plastic Age which has travelled from Cornwall to Glasgow for COP26.

 The Plastic Age is a twenty-first century plastic Stone Circle, created from discarded waste materials cleaned from beaches in Padstow, Cornwall. Each stone is modelled on a nanoplastic particle, transforming this invisible threat to our oceans and life on the planet into a hyper-visible monument, highlighting the magnitude of the microplastic problem in both scale and time.

 The plastic stones have been created in Cornwall through a series of workshops with local schools and volunteers, who were then invited to gather around the monument on the 31st October, Samhain, in ceremony. Much like the Neolithic sites that inspired the project, now that the stones have journeyed to Glasgow, Terra Attune invite the public to congregate around them in discussion and celebration, through a series of workshops that pay close attention to these waste materials and their environmental impacts. Use a microscopic camera to inspect plastics up close and record a video which will become part of the Plastic Age project.

 Please join us in the Studio Pavilion yard and Project Space on Sunday 7th November for one of two drop-in workshops with Terra Attune.



No need to book, just show up! Family friendly – all ages welcome!
