Great weekend at the wonderful Festival of Thrift, Darlington over the weekend. The festival was a celebration of all things recycled, up-cycled, vintage, healthy, green. It was about raising awareness of big issues through theatre, music, comedy, art, craft, charity work and swap shops. It was so lovely to meet so many lovely people and to see such great work.
We exhibited a collection of work created using old boxes, tins, shoe trees, old paper, maps and discarded objects many of which were picked up from french flea markets, over the summer.
We enjoy creating small scenes involving hot air balloon adventures, elegant animals in fine clothes and we try to breath new life into old, discarded and preloved objects…. adding a little magic along the way!

1000 doors and a lot of plasticPosted: March 19, 2012 Filed under: 1000 doors, Art, Beautiful objects, Choi Jeong Hwa, Colour, Everyday Objects, Extraordinary, Installation Art, Uncategorized, Up cycled | Tags: 1000 Doors, Choi Jeong-Hwa, Colour, Everyday objects, Installation art Leave a comment
The city of Seoul is always under construction so South Korean artist Choi Jeong-Hwa has created a shielding screen for a building under construction. Jeong-Hwa used 1000 brightly coloured recycled doors to create a screen for a 10-storey building, at the same time turning it into a visual delight. The artist felt that by using discarded doors in the installation he could retain something of the memories and the daily routines that these doors once were party to. He says: “There were lives that used to pass through those doors.” 1000 Doors is also a means to engage the greater city population on the possibility of making “normal” things appear extraordinary.
Above is a selection of some of his wonderful installations from around the world.
