Exciting News’s. 10.04.19
I have been chosen by Charis Williams (Salvage Sister) as seen on TV to Demonstrate and exhibit my Upcyled China Tea set interior creations at the Good Life Show this May. 😍
THE GOOD LIFE: REVIVE, RECYCLE, RESTORE
SUNDAY 05 MAY TO MONDAY 06 MAY 2019 at the Weald & Down living museum Chichester.
10.30am – 5pm
Rural communities were the masters of up-cycling and sustainable living well before it ever became fashionable. Making the most of what you had and living in harmony with the natural environment were simply a given. In modern times we’ve lost this ability, but a ground swell of popular opinion and action has seen the idea of living a more eco-friendly life become a zeitgeist moment.
The Good Life will join this movement and show visitors how to bring a new lease of life to themselves and their possessions. There will be a raft of activity including:
The Swap Shop A fashion exchange in partnership with Transition Chichester
The Repair Café On-the-spot repairs by the Repair Café Foundation
Knit and Natter A vintage tea tent with have-a-go knitting
Upcycling demonstrations featuring Salvage Sister as seen on TV, designed and handcrafted by Charis Williams
Wellbeing Tipi, Taster classes of yoga, Tai Chi and mindfulness for adults and kids
Kitchen theatre Demonstrations, by local Chefs with a focus on high welfare, ethical produce
Talks programme Speakers across a range of eco-living topics
Kids zone Forest school inspired sessions; a bicycle powered sewing machine and other hands-on fun for kids in partnership with Sussex Green Living
