Thanks to everyone who donated a broken brolly or participated in the February sessions. 68 participants helped us dismantle 667 rescued umbrellas. That’s 54Kg of metal and 667msq of fabric out of landfill and ready for new lives as artworks.
Participants worked together to re-purpose broken umbrellas into functional artworks as street-side rain shelters. They learnt design and sewing skills, as well as shared up-cycling and recycling skills, in a very sociable and caring setting.
