Mend and Make Do and Upcycle Too

Well, Rude Record is back after a hiatus. We were busy after Christmas with travel and projects. Danny had 6 weeks off and we went down the coast for a little break away from the big smoke. Whilst away we were always scouting around charity shops and skip bins for anything useful.

On return from our holiday in late January, we prepared for a community sustainability festival. The brief given to us by the local municipality revolved around upcycling clothes and materials. Danny also presented some basic electrical DIY such as rewiring a lamp.

The festival was great fun and there was much interest in what we do and how we live our life. What struck us most was the number of women who said they would never be able to think of creating something different from something else, especially discarded objects or materials.
