Welcome back to Season 3 of the ReCreate Creative Corner. We’ve been chatting about what we’d like to do once we get back to normal and we all agreed that it would be a holiday! Until then, we’ve just got to make a holiday in our homes 🙂 so let’s get creative with it! #CreateDontContaminate #TheCommunityCall

Shake it till you make it! In part one of a trilogy we investigate different things we can make shakers out of and how to make them. Collect those stones, grab some pasta, throw in some rice and shake! Shake! Shake! #recreateireland #changex #createdontcontaminate #thecommunitycall

In this Creative Shed we make a 3-D creature out of tin foil and use wool fibres to make it colourful. What will your tin foil scrunching turn into? Share your mysterious beast with us! #recreateireland #changex #thecommunitycall #createdontcontaminate
Season 2 – Epsiode 2
Welcome to our next Creative Shed episode where we continue the framework for the wearable recreations sculpture and make some vegetables.

Then take a fancy photo and share your foodie photos with us and your pals! #recreateireland #changex #thecommunitycall #createdontcontaminate
Season 2 – Episode 1
Welcome to Season 2 of the Creative Corner. We have had a change of location while we #StayAtHome so welcome to our Creative Shed. In this episode we give you ideas for creating wearable recreations. Head dress? Hat? Creative piece? Throw in the special ingredients of imagination, repurposed materials and some spring-time vibes and you are ready for the parade! #recreateireland #changex #TheCommunityCall #createdontcontaminate
In this episode we introduce you to new alien friends for our ‘out of this world’ world we have created previously. Come for the aliens and flying saucers, stay for the really good jokes!
Welcome to Episode 7 of our Creative Corner. In this episode we once again look at turning our piece into a 3D World. We also explore making a theater piece by creating characters for our show 🙂
In this episode we take an image from 2-D to 3-D and turn our scene into a potential stage backdrop or other worldly place. We used some materials from our warehouse and a box which you might find at home. Come with use as we create a new place/planet from our imaginations!
In this episode we continue our creative journey by using cardboard frames to view the collaborative piece made previously. By creating a view finder, we find ourselves investigating the work and seeing new and interesting things! We look at reworking the big piece by dividing into smaller sections and suggestion to cut up images to send to friends and families.
In this episode we move our framing theme along to create a new collage. We make full use of off-cuts and scraps (or what we like to call treasure and inspiration!) by sticking and stitching them down to create new surfaces and textures, transforming into a new scene/land!
Welcome back to episode 3 or #ReCreate Creative Corner. In this episode we look at making prints and exploring different materials for making cool textures and designs using paint 🙂
Welcome to episode 2 of #ReCreate Creative Corner. Today we’re exploring circles and all the many possibilities they can lead to! From rings on a toss game, to headbands and dream catchers. Join in and see what you come up with! We’d love for you to share your finished items with us on Facebook
Join us for some interactive workshop fun as we try our best to stay #creative
