Reincarnated Rubbish – Endangered and Extinct 2 @ Discover Bucks Museum | England | United Kingdom

We’re delighted to show work by Val Hunt once again. With inspiration, ingenuity, humour and skill, creative recycling artist Val Hunt has created a fascinating selection of large and small sculptural pieces which are both appealing and informative.

Animals, exotic birds, fish, dinosaurs and species of flora, all on the edge or now extinct, have been made from a selection of throwaway materials especially Val’s favourite medium, metal drink cans.

This exhibition is full of witty, humorous, imaginative and thought-provoking constructions. The exhibition presents a subtle message about recycling and preservation and hopefully it will inspire and encourage everyone to experience the fun of creative recycling.

Visitors loved the exhibition last time and found Val’s creations amazing. One visitor said that it was the most wonderful exhibition that she had ever visited! There are some new pieces including Val’s sculpture of the Queen.

Artisan Craft Fair @ Queens Park Arts Centre and Limelight Theatre
Nov 13 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

The Queens Park Arts Centre Craft Fair returns this year, with a fantastic family event set for Saturday 13th November.

As part of the Centre’s packed autumn season, the fair will be a perfect opportunity to pick up a bespoke Christmas gift (or a treat to self!). QPAC will be welcoming the very best local artists and makers, who’ll be exhibiting a wide range of beautiful handmade art and craft.

There’ll be all manner of artisanal pieces for sale, including pottery and ceramics, textiles, fine art, glass, jewellery, woodwork and much more. As well as some familiar faces from previous fairs, there’ll be brand new exhibitors too.

In addition to the stalls there’ll be a chance for young artists to flex their creative muscles at a variety of craft activities, plus there’ll be entertainment too from the Unbound Storytellers. Visitors should have their Christmas lists ready, as Father Christmas will be stopping by too!

The QPAC Coffee Bar will be open serving hot and cold refreshments throughout the day, including homemade cakes and fresh coffee, teas and soft drinks. Free parking is available on site and at a nearby overflow site.
