Upcycling Crafts Course

A practical, online, creative & fun course involving discussion, tutor instruction, demonstration and practical crafting. Explore and discuss the value and possibilities of upcycling, sustainability and resourcefulness in craft. Learn about how a few simple adaptations, additions and techniques can transform household waste into fabulous, useful and beautiful items.

In session one we will explore using waste paper in simple basketry projects, so please do salvage any newspapers, junk mail and brochures which might otherwise go into the bin. From here we will select options for crafting projects over the remaining sessions according to group members' interests and access to materials. This could include rag rugging, paper bead making, patchworking, woven magazine bags and placemats, plastic bottle vases, coiled paper bowls, tin can lanterns, junk jewellery and cardboard box stationery and storage.
