We can't do it without your help; two weeks of crowd funding campaign left, please support us now :)

SO, why should you donate to JUNK: rubbish to gold?

Not only are we offering beautiful rewards hand picked and made by Jivan, Rachel and Laura, but our project has heart too..

JUNK: rubbish to gold’s aims to make craft visible. We strongly believe that creativity does not come from expensive or ‘high-tech’ materials and tools, but rather from the ability to work with a material and transform it through design.

By putting on display the processes that go into the creation of finely crafted objects,JUNK: rubbish to gold shows that it is the time and skills of the maker that creatively transform this JUNK into objects of desire, demonstrating that value is to be found in the creative processes of creating craft rather than the monetary value of materials alone. 

And we have had lots of support, over 10 charities are donating their broken, unserviceable jewellery to us, many businesses has sponsored us materials and equipment for the performance and we even are teaming up with the Crafts Council of England in support of their Education Manifesto, because we do believe in the importance of promoting world-class higher education and research in craft.

And with your help, that is what this project will do!
