DIY and Turn Waste Into Useful Items and Art

DIY and Turn Waste Into Useful Items and Art

Instead of throwing away old and unwanted materials and items, why not use your creativity to turn these waste into useful items and stylish decorations or art. Start a DIY (do-it-yourself) project to reuse your waste material and items. Here's some local inspiration: Singapore DIY Didier Ng is a local designer who reuses waste material and objects, and turns them into original lifestyle and fashion products like lamps, furniture, bags, wallets and accessories. Each piece of her work is unique and shows that there is no such thing as waste. Some of the waste that she reuses include plastic bottles, rubber tyres, used banners and rice bags. Agy is a local eco designer and have been refashioning clothing and fabric. She also conducts talks and workshops on upcycling and wearable technology. Singapore Makers is the community platform for Makers in Singapore and also features a list of Makerspaces in Singapore where people can work on making stuff and DIY projects.
