What is Creative Reuse?
Creative Reuse can mean different things to different people. But the core of the concept is to reuse or repurposing items and materials that might have otherwise gone to waste, perhaps ending up in a landfill or worse. The magic behind it is the creativity … that artists, crafters, makers and teachers employ to transform unwanted or underutilized materials into something great. Something that’s inspiring like a piece of art. Or something that’s functional like furniture or even clothing.
