Art for Wellbeing - Upcycling

Do you have some old clothes that you would like to give a fresh new look to?

Adding a new look to old clothes will make you feel like you have a new item in your wardrobe. You could also upcycle some items that you would normally recycle, for example, tins or jars.

During this 2 session workshop you learn how to give old items a new look or a new purpose. Making masks out of an old t-shirt or painting food tins and decorating them to make a pen pot or even taking an old jam jar and giving it a new use are just a few ideas.
