Creativity through Reuse

Marrying the creative, personal and ecological benefits of reuse, ReCreate are proposing to create a unique body of work for display during Yulefest in the City of Kilkenny. Using ReCreate’s materials such as plastics, foil, wool and fabrics, they will transform a number (tbc/max six) of shop windows within the city centre to inspire the curiosity and imaginations of locals and visitors during the month of December 2019.

we propose to visit a number of local schools with a character or selection of characters made, before the final installation of works within the shop windows. We will provide a one-hour hands-on workshop per school, where the children can explore their thoughts on the creative reuse of materials. If agreeable, Cartoon Saloon will also facilitate a number of workshops or provide material/information in relation to the production of the stories that relate to the characters made for Yulefest. Alternatively, children can create their own stories of the characters created

Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
