Upcycling Durham, UK First meeting!

Our first Upcycling project
Our first Upcycling project

So after an interesting email sent around from one of the many mailing lists I am, a new group has been formed: An Upcycling one!   On Thursday the 15th of May at the Old Church in Sacriston we held our first meeting. This was a chance for us to get to know each other, see what everyone else was making from their unwanted stuff and be inspired by each other.

Eve, the lady who had sent the original e-mail, had also brought along instructions and materials for us all to make our own little Upcycling project there and then. Using old jumpers, blankets and other fabric we all created a flower that either became a broach or a cuff for the wrist like mine above.

It is our hope that we can continue to inspire each other and others with the amazing, unique and quirky things that we can create.

We are planning to meet at the Old Church in Sacriston every other Thursday from 6pm, all are welcome, to keep up to date please join our Google Group
