I aspire to work more with the pupils at local primary schools, taking old and discarded items from around the school with the aim of creating a series of creative pieces in collaboration with the students. These items will then be donated back to the school for display, use and fundraising for future school projects.
These workshops are designed to underline the importance of educating people, young and old, about the impact to the environment of the disposable culture found in high-street shopping and the home decorating industry. 40% of UK household waste goes to landfill, and production processes are often focused on mass-producing items.
I welcome the opportunity to advocate the virtues of being creative and finding a use for many items and materials that would otherwise be given up on.
