THE FESTIVAL OF THRIFT

October 12th 2014

We were very excited to be asked to provide activity at The Festival of Thrift in Darlington at the end of September. The festival is run by the well known designer Wayne Hemingway and his lovely wife Stella, and we were working alongside awesome upcyclers and recyclers such as Max McMurdo of Kirstie Allsopp's 'Fill Your House For Free'. About 400 children made puppets and brought them to life using stop motion animation! I wore a bridesmaid's dress that I wore when I was 20 for my Auntie Tracey's wedding - it had a makeover using tie dye, hand painted dying and pom poms!
