JUNK TO PUNK will have a primary focus on textiles and old fabrics, embellished with buttons, buckles, beads and brooches from that old tin in grandma's cupboard or a back shelf at the local second hand shop. The works will be original and individual, created with an eye for design, and could be functional or decorative.Plastics, wire, string, paper, leather, old clothes, curtains, t-shirts, jeans, and furniture can be re-worked in a riot of colour and texture, as pictures, jackets, vests, cushions, throws, toys, handbags and 2-D and 3-D whimsical masterpieces. A broad definition of textiles can include anything which is woven, manipulated or embellished and combined with other materials to illustrate fantastical shapes or functional pieces.

For ideas on what to do with your hoarded junk, pop into the Knick Knackery and see what amazing things have been made from recycled materials.Have a chat to the wonderful women there who can suggest ways to upcycle and give a second life to your special things. A peek into the weird and wonderful stuff at the Knick Knackery will get your juices flowing and you mind whirling with ideas.
