artists, you're always blowing my mind and warming my heart!
Look at these repurposed soy sauce fish earrings by @calamitytash
And these clutches and notepad covers by Sarah Jane! The clutches are made from discarded banners from the Maritime Museum. The covers are old paintings on canvas. They are such beautiful colours.
Adelaide Remakery Artists such as @wonderwhatyouwere
are also repurposing banners from the Vogue festival in Adelaide into gorgeous bags, clutches, gift tags and so on. Cindy from Wonder What You Were also makes cutlery wraps, produce bags and all sorts of bags from repurposed fabrics.
The pallet stools are made my teenagers disengaged from mainstream schooling and the cushions were hessian sacks tied up at the edges.
What about the Day of the Dead dolls? They were once unwanted Barbie dolls and action men.
There are some new things too such as @stylishly.sustainable
reusable straws, reusable coffee cups, TAR crochet dish scrubbers and makeup removers, to replace single-use plastics such as plastic straws, disposable coffee cups, artificial fabric dish clothes like Chux and disposable make-up wipes.
The Adelaide Remakery is helping promote a circular economy where resources don't get used once then thrown into landfill when they can't be recycled, but repurposed, remade, reused, repaired, etc.
We need more people to shop here rather than buying new, enjoy and learn at their dozens of workshops a month, and keep thinking of new ways to redirect our resources away from landfill ♻️ #shopsustainably #reduce #reuse #repair #remake #repurpose #recycle #upcycle #theadelaideremakery #adelaide #sustainable #sustainableadelaide #waronwaste
