Only $40 - please pay online. Limited spaces are available or until Monday, February 15, 2021.
Handsworth and Ocean Wise Partnership
Secondary artists have created coasters in collaboration with Ocean
Wise. These designs reflect ideas around Sea forestation - the act of
restoring, planting, managing and caring for underwater seaweed forests. Proceeds go to the Ocean Wise Bursary Program, serving schools that
have a high concentration of youth vulnerable to the effects of poverty.
Coasters are $20 for a set of 4, or $50 for a set of 12. Cash only to
Mr. Bogen. Email email@example.com to place an order. You can
choose to purchase a random set of any 4 designs, or provide the number
corresponding to each design in your email. (For example, write: “set of
4, numbers 2, 7, 8 and 15.” Or “set of 12, any designs.” We can also
create custom coasters with your personal photos for $30 per set of 4
coasters. Images need to have content in the centre with room around the
edge, as the image needs to be cropped into a circle. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more
