In this video, Melinda shares her inspirationally creative Waste to Art story on sewing couture-style dresses from waste, highlighting how you can make something beautiful and spectacular from things that other people have thrown away.
Melinda gives us greater insight in to the background, inspiration and process of creating these dresses in her written story Blue Wrap Couture: From Waste to Art, found here in the stories about the community.
Exhibiting each year in the Lake Macquarie Sustainable Neighbourhood’s Waste to Art Exhibition, Melinda’s story will encourage you to start creating!
An Inspirationally Creative Waste to Art Story
Waste to Art Exhibition
Lake Macquarie Sustainable Neighbourhoods are challenging the way we look at waste with the 2020 Waste to Art exhibition.
Waste to Art is a community art exhibition, open to everyone in the Lake Macquarie region of NSW. Everyone in our community – artists, creatives, community groups and schools – are invited to take up the challenge and create a new life for materials that will otherwise be thrown away.
