Checkitout people - an upcycling contest!
Upcycle Christmas is a competition for people to take second hand and charity stuff and make it into something new and desirable to be sold at an online auction starting on the 7th December. It's sponsored by Folksy and benefits Sue Ryder Care and the judges are:
Wayne Hemingway MBE, who’s been at the forefront of British design for yonks, initially with Red or Dead and now moving into architecture and built environment
Louise Roe, the fashion journalist and ex BBC Clothes Show presenter who now guests on programmes like Britain’s Next Top Model
India Knight (wikipedia), the columnist, champion of craft and making, and author of amongst other things The Thrift Book: How to Live Well and Spend Less
There are all sorts of exciting rules and prizes and tickets and forms and things, so I'd better start typing and get myself over to the website NOW.
