1000 Ideas for Creative Reuse contains the most up-to-date inventive work being made using re-used, up-cycled, and already existing materials.
Artists and crafters have always been recyclers, from re-using old linens in their quilts and rag rugs to using egg cartons to make kid's toys. But for many, it has not only become a thrifty choice, it has become a moral imperative.
The work in this book ranges from clever and humble personal accessories to unique and important large-scale works of art. It ranges from simple crafts, to more technical applications of reuse.
