issue of the newsletter features some great resources to inspire you to reuse
materials to make art, and if you live in or near Palo Alto, California, this is
your lucky day! Were putting the art/reuse spotlight on an organization called
FabMo, a group that salvages designer fabrics and provides them, free of charge,
to teachers and others who work for nonprofits.
Also, we're introducing a new feature about artists who reuse and/or recycle materials. First up, we'll travel to the Netherlands to learn about an artist who spins newspaper strips to make yarn, of sorts. Then we'll discover how a chef turned wood sculptor found his true calling as a craftsman on the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest.
We've scoured the Internet and found even more good Web sites that have a strong art/reuse focus, and we've added to our list of art and craft books that will help you learn new ways to reuse materials to save money and Mother Earth. Finally, we hope you'll forgive the pun about dollies and doilies, but we couldn't resist! In the last section, you'll see how a simple piece of paper can be turned into a winter greeting card or valentine.
