We’re casting a Spotlight on the recyclable materials we reuse at the studio with monthly material themes and boards for each of our themes on Pinterest. Take a look at our boards to see a broad view of the ideas and interesting reuses we find for our spotlight materials at CReATE.
Throughout each month we showcase snippets of curiosity like how these materials inspire us, how they get donated, how we use them, what people make with them, where they come from, what artists are doing with them as well as their impact on our planet.
We desire to build interest in our creative community and beyond, sparking awareness and mindfulness with these everyday things. You’ll see our spotlight moments on our blog page and in our weekly e-newsletter each month.
February’s material genre is Yarn & String. We have a lot to explore this month with this often natural and increasingly man made material that we find in the knitting and crochet worlds as well as here at the studio!
