Upcycle gets upcycled Recycled home: Anna Pashby, Bea Lorimer and Nora West toast their new space at Artworks with upcycled glasses made from old bottles by collective member Neil Hemens. By LYNDAL JEFFERIES The Upcycle artists col- lective has relocated to the octagonal building at Artworks in Oneroa pre- viously occupied by the i-site information centre which has moved into the village. They celebrated the opening of their recycled venue on Friday. In the spirit of the craft collective the artists say they saw an opportunity to occupy the empty building over the summer before Artworks is redeveloped. They describe them- selves as a group of artists passionate about rescuing textiles and other materials and giv- ing them new life as con- temporary craft objects . Lynne Stewart makes recycled rag rugs and makes pin cushions and lavender bags from vin- tage embroidered mats and doilies. Nora West upcycles coffee sacks into bags, cushions and baskets and Anna Pashby makes floral brooches and quirky soft toys from recycled fabric. Bea Lorimer recycles textile waste into new garments and has a line of skirts and tops and accessories for women and children. Neil Hemens creates glasses from recycled bottles and metal wall art and Cheryl Lyall crafts fairy wings and crocheted tea cozies and cards. Woodworker Don Stod- art also has a range of small sculptures and chopping boards on dis- play. Textile artist Rose McLeod has some of her beautiful wallhangings on display and has now recycled the previous upcycle studio into her own shop selling de- signer recycled clothing. Working studio artists are also joining the Upcycle crafters with a range of artists working on site over summer. Upcycle is open daily from 10am to 4pm at Artworks, Oneroa.
