All ages are welcome
Here’s a chance to use discarded items to create new objects, funny or clever or beautiful or thought-provoking. We will all help each other with our imaginations and skills.
There will be plenty of “found” material supplied; however people should bring any kind of material they can find, anything that is old and ready to be discarded and that they find appealing to re-use.
So: metal, plastic, paper, fiber, anything… We will be putting things together using glue, screws, twine, and we’ll bring down an array of tools , glues, screws, etc etc.
