Turn something old into something new!
Once again the Upcycling Academy, headed by Barley Massey of Fabrications, brings alternative creative ideas to the show. They offer a range of projects from rosette making to knitting with waste fabric, plus customisation of clothing and lots of other inspiring ideas to bring life to old cast-offs!
‘To expose the scandal of global poverty, and human rights injustices though the power of craft and public art. This will be done through provocative, non-violent creative actions’.
Who would have thought The Knitting and Stitching Shows could help fight social injustice!!
If you’re a teacher this is the perfect place to bring your students – get them thinking while they’re being creative. We ask for a small donation to take part, but you’ll leave feeling fired up and crafty!
The Upcycling partners have all contributed to a Teachers Resource Pack which will be available from this page from September.
Upcycling is now located in the Panorama Room (turn right from the West Hall Corridor).
