IN A NUTSHELL

Inspirational ways to upcycle everyday ‘waste’ into beautiful house-hold items

GO ON...

Join artist Diana Jones for a new monthly arts & crafts session.

This month: transform your old plastic milkbottles into beautiful and useful creations. Stay half a day and go home with a fantasy mobile, stay the whole day and make a dazzling lampshade ready to fit your existing light fittings! Please bring an empty milk bottle or two.

WHAT TO EXPECT

During the course of the day, you will

  • design, drawing on source images to inspire shapes, particularly from natural world- leaves, bones, sea creatures...
  • explore utilising various everyday tools in alternative way. EG stapling with desk stapler, ironing milk bottle plastic, paper fasteners, hole punches….
  • experiment with  various ways of manipulating and joining ‘waste’  material:  weaving, threading, ironing, putting through laminator, glue gun, pop riveting….
