Waste Not, Want Not presented by Commonwheel Artists Co-op at Commonwheel Artists Co-op, Manitou Springs CO

Did you know your Grandparents were Up-cyclers?

Up-cycling is not a new concept. In the 1930’s and ‘40’s, an age of thrift, almost everything was reused or re-purposed. Old curtains re-upholstered chairs, wooden doors became tabletops, feed sacks became dresses.

Unlike recycling which takes consumer materials like plastic, paper, metal, or glass and breaks them down to their base materials, up-cycling uses very little energy or resources—just your own hands and imagination.

When you up-cycle an item you aren’t breaking it down to its component parts, you’re refashioning the item to make what’s old, new again, but with a creative twist.

Waste Not, Want Not is a juried art show featuring up-cycled art by 13 artists using items as diverse as computer components, furniture, lumber, saw blades, and doll parts.

This show is hosted in conjunction with Who Gives A Scrap.
