Discover the joys of creating beautiful and practical things from recycled materials
Cambridge textile artist Jenny Langley will explore how working with recycled materials feeds her creativity and inspires her to try new and different ideas.
“It lead me to a deep appreciation of all the good things that I have in my life, so I’m much happier with my lot than I used to be. No more striving to get what I haven’t got, as ”ve already got great riches. I now treat everything as precious, and I feel that that’s a really good way to look at the world.”
Jenny will tell us the story of how she came to work with recycled materials, her techniques and what you will need to start to creating your very own things. She will also bring some fabrics to share with those who are eager to get start immediately.

We’ll be collecting your thoughts and ideas about recycling and how to make the best of pre-own materials as part of our Capturing Cambridge project
