Free For All, Wigton, Cumbria

I’ve been experimenting with some materials that I picked up in a scrap store in Wigton, Cumbria.  “Free For All”  is a volunteer run scrap shop, open every Saturday until 12.00pm. I picked up a load of coloured cellophane as this is made in the local factory and the offcuts are readily available.

Was really impressed with the scrap store, as although it is tucked away in the back streets of Wigton, it was absolutely jam packed with people looking for scrap items. It was also run by some really cheery and helpful volunteers who were generally awesome.

As I will be leading some craft workshops in Cumbria during the first week of September I have been testing out various methods of constructing lanterns, using driftwood, cellophane, PVA and tissue. Could get quite messy…
