Alchemy Arts: Recycling Is Chic

Alchemy Arts: Recycling Is Chic Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Alchemy Arts is a community-based arts project in Edinburgh that collects scrap from businesses and households and uses it to create artworks, workshops, and parades in the city. This book takes their philosophy one stage further and offers projects in fashion, home design, and crafts for individuals to make or adapt themselves.

Includes ingenious uses for packs of old playing cards (a top hat for fancy dress), old ties stitched into dresses, and many more ideas and suggestions.

With the inclusion of American crafters' projects as well as those from the United Kingdom, this is likely to be a popular addition to the growing collection of books available for crafters.

Synopsis:

A book of ideas and instructions for making clothing, useful things, and art from found objects.
