My recent posts have been about a visit to the village of Barrydale, about 2 and a bit hours from Cape Town.
An area filled with some amazing scenery with numerous photo opportunities. I had the opportunity to visit the premesis of an Art Collective called MAGPIE ” a socially conscious art collective” based in the town. Working in various mediums including recycled materials, they produce items for their studio, undertaking commissions and installations, as well as participating in exhibitions. The collective are active within the local community, by engaging in local community income generation projects, crafters and civil society endeavours. More information about what the collective does and their work is available on their website http://www.magpieobjects.mfbiz.com/#
I was amazed to see the innovative ways they were using recycled materails to create wonderful craft items. So, my submission for this weeks “Create” photo challenge are my perspective of some of the items created from recycled materials that were on display at the MAGPIE Studio.
Bella from the 52 Photos Project http://www.52photosproject.com/ has selected “circles” for this weeks prompt, when I saw the topic, I couldnt resist posting a link to this post for that prompt…..:-)
………………the journey continues…………………………
