This fundraiser for Estuary Arts Centre challenges artists to transform anything that has been discarded or thrown out and repurpose or upcycle it into an artwork.

There will be upcycled jewellery, clothing, accessories and designer furniture.

Artists were inspired by the New Zealand TV series “Designer Junkies” and the BBC TV hit “Money for Nothing”, where Sarah Moore saves three things from being dumped, transforms them into bespoke and valuable pieces of art and furniture, then returns the profits back to the people who threw the items away. 


Weaver's globally acclaimed work comes to Auckland

Matekino Lawless is bringing her weavings to Auckland's Franklin Art Centre for an exhibition this November.

Flights of Fancy by Diane Taylor and Shelley Wilson

The artists' styles are quite different but their aims are the same: to entrance and delight the visitor. ​
