Who's up for re/upcycling in Munich, Germany?
I just discovered this page and would love to start something here in Munich.
Who lives in Munich and wants to start something??
We are building the machines in the Munich Maker Lab and there are a bunch of more people in Munich who want to get started 🙌
I think @severin was planning to organize a Precious Plastic Munich meetup during the Streetlife Festival in May – so we can all meet, exchange and join forces!
Hi @dbougas, hi everyone
We’ll have a booth at Make Munich, number 104 on their map (https://make-munich.de/make-munich-programm-online/). Feel free to pass by. It’ll be mostly me there, @dmte will be supporting here and there, but he’s also part of the Make Munich team. If you want to join me in talking about Precious Plastic for two days, I still have an additional exhibitor ticket 😉
We’ve been making some things in the injection machine and the compression oven over the past week or two, and we’ll be showing that along with some extruded bowls and other things I got on the bazaar. Also talking about plastic a lot, and stuff like that.
Did you see we we’re in the tz newspaper on Wednesday? And we’ll be on TV in BR sometime tonight I think 🎉
See you this weekend hopefully 🙂
Hey guys I didn’t see the conversation yet soorryyyy !!!
Every week end I tell myself to send you a message to meet you hahaha
the 1st May I’m not here but I’m here this week end or the week end of the 5 and 6 May. Or during the week for an evening … We could organize an after work to the lab ?
So crazy @severin what you did !! I would love to join and help you to build the machine 🙂
How’s May 1st for everyone? Thinking we could meet up at Munich Maker Lab and talk about stuff, throw some stuff on the bbq, that sort of thing 🙂
Everything sounds great. I already added myself to the map 🙂
It would be super cool to get something started here!
Hey @jacteh 👋
as @katharinaelleke mentioned we (@dmte, her and me) are currently in the process of building machines at the Munich Maker Lab, and there’s some pictures of that over here. The MuMaLab has a booth at Streetlife festival, which happens on the first weekend of May, where we’re planning to show some precious plastic stuff as well.
As for the Meetup, I’d love to do one during the week before that, which is also when I and hopefully some more people will do a lot more machine building in the Lab. I should probably get that meetup set in the next few days 🙈
Hey beautiful people!
Next meetup is coming up on Wednesday night, who’s coming?
Make Munich was great, and there’s a bunch of cool stuff going on. We also sent out our latest newsletter last week, so check that out, if you haven’t received it already: https://mailchi.mp/29216e0e3254/precious-plastic-munich-news-in-march
Hey Dimitri where are you going in France ? ^^
The Whatsapp group is a super idea so that we can contact us more easily !
I will send you mine by private message.
Thanks for adding me to the conversation. May 1st is fine for me.
unfortunately, we don’t do workshops at our workspace quite yet. But you are always welcome to visit. We’re still trying to figure out what kind of workshops we can do, I can keep you updated with the progress 🙂
super Projekt, das ihr da auf die Beine gestellt habt. Ich habe eine eher ungewöhnliche Anfrage. Meine beste Freundin wird im Juni 30. Da sie sich seit längerem für Umweltschutz und plastikfreies Wohnen interessiert und viele Dinge bereits umsetzt und ändert wollte ich ihr einen Art Recycling Workshop schenken, dabei bin ich auf precious plastic und euren workspace gestoßen. kann man sich eure Werkstatt mal ansehen? Ich würde meiner Freundin gerne eine Besichtigung schenken und noch besser wäre es natürlich, wenn wir bei euch selbst etwas gestalten könnten. was meinst du, ist das möglich?
Danke für ne kurze Info!
quick update: We have our second meetup tomorrow, at Munich Maker Lab again. Our injection molding machine is finally doing its thing, and we’ve done some experiments with PET bottles. More on all of that tomorrow.
There’s also a newsletter now, which you can sign up to here. And we have a booth at Make Munich, so feel free to pass by there on March 2nd + 3rd.
Looking forward to see you at one of those things 😉
first off: Happy new year! Let’s make it a good one 😉
For those who are not still on vacation: We’ll have our first meetup tomorrow night, starting at 6:30pm at MunichMakerLab, Dachauerstr. 112f. If that’s too early for you, no worries, just stop by later.
Everyone else: Enjoy your vacation, and see you around soon 🙂
Tuesday was a bit on the small side, but we discussed some stuff about what we could do moving forward.
The shredder is coming along, and we’ll put on some finishing touches tomorrow right before loading it into the truck for StreetLife festival. You’ll find us close to the corner of Theresienstraße, look for a red van with a dark blue tent out front. @dmte will probably be there both days, and I’m looking to be there all day on sunday as well. We might also bring our oven and do some compression tests, if we find some nice molds to work with.
Expect some pictures on instagram at https://www.instagram.com/preciousplasticmunich/
Looking forward to meeting some of you over the weekend
if i can i`ll come around
Get Together Time again! We’ll meet up this Tuesday, November 5th, 19:00 at the Munich Maker Lab. Looking forward to see you there.
we’re planning a small Get-Together on Monday, June 10th, 7pm, at the workshop (Munich Maker Lab, Dachauer Str. 112f, 80636 München) to get some things rolling again. David and I have been busy with tons of other things in the last two months, but we’d like to see some progress again, and also have a bit of news to share. We’ll likely do some shredding and play around with the other machines as well, and if the weather isn’t too shaby, we could light the barbecue.Looking forward to seeing some of you 🙂
Hi, Prima !
Too late for me for tomorrow and I will be also in France until 6/7th of Jan… But I would like to participate, I promise I will try harder 😜
For the make Munich… I want to participate, no I will, I could bring my small oven, my buggel and my silicon molds… What do you thing?
Who is OK for a whatsapps group? Private message to share the tel number😉 I will do the group.
Have a good Newton’s birthday Fest… Good holidays and rest.
Thank you for the news ! I was wondering yesterday what was going on ^^
On my side I will be back in France until the 5th of January so I will not be able for tomorrow and the meeting of the first wek of January.
However I’m in for giving a hand for the make Munich event and I find the idea of meetup super cool ! With more regular meeting I think we should be able to unlock the pain point 😉
I’m really looking foward to see how I can help you guys in this cool project.
See you soon and have great time for the rest of the year 🙂
wanted to give you all a quick update. @dmte and I’ve been busy with lots of other things recently, but we’ve been collecting plastic all along, and shredding some of it now and then when we get around to it. We’ve had some more problems with our shredder, it’s really kind of a pain at this point, but we try to keep it running as best as we can.
We have some plans for next year. First thing will be having regular meetings, current plan is like one per month, to keep things rolling a bit smoother. I’ve just opened up a meetup group to organize those meetings -> https://www.meetup.com/de-DE/Precious-Plastic-Munich , maybe we can have the first meeting already in the first week of January. What do you think?
Second, we’ll have a booth at Make Munich, the first weekend of March. The current plan is to take the shredder and the injection molding machine, and show off some things. Anyone interested in joining us?
Third, we’re looking for a dedicated space. Currently we’re located at the Munich Maker Lab, which is cool, but if we were to find something we could make into a special Precious Plastic haven, that would be extra sweet. So if you have any idea where we could do that, let us now.
Before we enter the new year, the Munich Maker Lab is having a small Christmas party tomorrow, Thursday, Dec 20th, at their space, and we’ll be there too. If you have time to pass by, we’d love to show you some of the stuff that we’ve been making, collecting, etc.
my name is Michael and I´m from Austria. But I run an office in Tittling near Passau, which means that I´m in Germany every week. If there are new meetings where I can join, please tag me and I try to come as fast as possible to learn more about the machine and how to recycle plastic.
Hey guys I was in the US for a road trip, just came back yesterday.
Let me know if an other meeting is coming soon ! still have energy to come and help you !!! 🙂
Thanks a lot for your message… Came back Thursday… Mother in law came Saturday… Hard to find time.
How was the festival??
Hey everyone! It’s been a while, so time for an update, huh?
Next Streetlife festival is coming up in a week, and those seem to be some sort of accelerator for the stuff we do, weirdly enough. So again, we’ll have a booth there, we’ll bring the shredder, which hopefully works a whole lot better than last time. We’ll also bring a big amount of plastic to shred, some stickers, and maaaaybe even our injection machine. It’s been in the works for ever, now we’re just left with putting it together, painting it, and making a few molds to test it out. Super exciting, and I hope I can finish it on time.
Anyway, long story short, I hope we’ll meet a few of you there, and maybe use that as a start for more regular meetings. We’ll be across the street from the Staatsbibliothek, I’ll be there Saturday and Sunday, and @dmte will join on Sunday.
