Get creative in Harleston with your unwanted items

PUBLISHED: 17:11 05 March 2012

Recycling takes on a creative – and greener – twist in Harleston this month: “upcycling”.

Sparkle and Flair, on the Old Market Place, is hosting four workshops to show people the art of re-using everyday, unwanted items and waste materials – giving them a new purpose, instead of throwing them away.

No prior knowledge of sewing or crafting is necessary as a skilled “upcycler” will be on hand with help and guidance.

The workshops take place on Friday, March 9, 16, 23 and 30, 2-4pm.

The first workshop will explore new things to do with unwanted paper and card (bring along any old newspapers, magazines, wrapping paper, or old greetings cards).

Week two will look at things to do with fabric. Bring along unwanted clothes and take them back redesigned (for example, a pair of trousers can be turned into shorts, a skirt, a shirt, a cushion or a bag).

Week three will cover metal, such as takeaway trays, wire and lidded tins; week four will look at things to do with plastic such as drinks bottles, milk bottle lids, probiotic drink bottles and carrier bags.

Booking essential. Tickets – at £4.50 per session – available from the shop or by calling 01379 855491.
