Upcycling – canal boat style!

Arts + Wellbeing

Bead ‘n Blether art group saw an opportunity not to be missed when they spotted a pile of old wooden crates lying around in Home Bargains this month…

They asked staff if they could take the freebies, and in just 2 classes they totally transformed them!

First they painted the crates in bright colours, then looked at traditional canal boat painting for design inspiration…

And built up layers of paint to create beautiful flowers and colourful patterns:










The finished crates are gorgeous! Upcycling at it’s finest!
