I’ve been a fan of Rainbow Revolution for a while now, and when Leanne announced that she and her friend Shahrin were opening a bricks-and-mortar shop, I was thrilled for them both.
I’m also thrilled to announce that I now have stock in their delightful b&m store – The Bower Bird Project.
“The Bower Bird Project is all about showcasing wonderful artists and crafts people who use up-cycled materials in their work; inspiring the general community with up-cycling workshops, and to source and supply intriguing, useful and at times unique materials to ignite creative flame and to promote the use of these materials in making up-cycled items of beauty and function for every day use and enjoyment.”
Being a big fan of re-using and recycling as much as we can in our daily lives, I was thrilled to be gifted a large roll of copper wire, that had been collecting dust in the corner of a shed. That wire has become an integral part of many of my jewellery designs now, as well as the electrical wire that I’ve salvaged, stripped and cleaned.
The gals at The Bower Bird Project have plans of organising and running workshops for the community to learn the skills of upcycling and reusing – turning to eco-minded solutions for art and craft making, and to help community members get in touch with their own creativity.
All of the items pictured in this post (plus a couple more!) are now available at The Bower Bird Project.
So if you are in Gosford – or driving through – drop in to 109a Donnison Street, and have a look at the up-cycled art, crafty treasures and supplies that Leanne and Shahrin have stocked in the shop.
Their opening hours are Tuesday – Friday 10:00am – 4pm and Saturday 10:00am – 1pm.
You can also find them on Facebook at The Bower Bird Project and at their website.
