It's probably pretty obvious how much I love Reverse Garbage*, one of my favourite organisations ever, as it is run by lovely people, AND caters to both my arty and environmentalist desires. If you love RG, or the idea of RG, you could come along to their end of year exhibition to support them (and get some environmentally friendly and local-artisan-supporting Christmas shopping done)!
Reverse Emporium at Reverse Garbage celebrates re-use, handmade and eco-conscious shopping with their festive exhibition, Handmade Fiesta.
The exhibition brings together over 25 talented Brisbane creatives who salvage, re-use and up-cycle materials to create unique, handmade and sustainable works and wares! The exhibition will showcase a diverse range of items including garlands, mobiles, decorations, jewellery, artworks, wall décor, wearable items, soft furnishings, soft toys and home wares.
Handmade Fiesta opens on Saturday 30 November, from 6.30-9.30pm. The opening event will feature all the usual perks alongside the exhibition such as a cash bar, free finger food, free craft activities, a live set by Astro Travellers and late night warehouse shopping.
Handmade Fiesta runs from Saturday 30 November – Tuesday 24 December 2013, open Monday to Saturday from 9 to 5pm. Reverse Emporium, Reverse Garbage 20 Burke St Woolloongabba.
I am one of those 25+ creatives! I will have things including...
Recycled paper flower garlands (and some single flowers on long stems), colour palette necklaces with recycled paper beads (everything is recycled paper, I'm going to stop typing that), confetti and other bowls, cards and avocado on toast fridge magnets, and fruit salad fridge magnets (the watermelon needs some pips)! And more! Good eco stocking stuffers!
More about why RG is awesome:
Reverse Garbage Brisbane is a not-for-profit worker run co-operative that promotes environmental sustainability and resource reuse.
We collect high quality industrial discards, diverting them away from landfill and sell them at a low cost to the general public.
*I think I could tag all of my posts Reverse Garbage, because my craft projects either involve materials from RG, or wares going to the RG gift shop
