Up-cycled Art

Emma Pace is a recycle artist who collects waste and found materials and re presents them for creative reuse. In these interactive workshops participants will learn upcycling skills to turn ‘trash to treasure.’ Each participant will be provided with a full kit of everything they need and written / video guidance for each project.

‘We all have up cycling projects we would like to do and things we would like to try our hand at but it’s getting all the things in the right place at the right time!’ – The beauty of Emma’s kits is that she provides an abundance of beautiful materials and a simple starting idea (which anyone can do!) but also leaves lots of room for individual creative flair. Emma’s workshops are ideal for learning new skills and making meaningful gifts for yourself or loved ones.

In Emma’s workshops she demonstrates how we can transform household fabric waste into beautiful new creations. She loves to teach resourcefulness and how we can use what we already have rather than buying new. All her kits are designed so all you have to do is open the box and let your creativity flow!

Please note: when booking your sessions, if you want to do Up-Cycled Art you need to supply your address so relevant materials can be posted to you. If you fail to provide this, your booking will be rejected.
