What is it?
Junkstop is a creative recycling community project. Throughout the summer New Mills based designer, Jason Taylor www.jasontaylor.co.uk and local artists will run workshops in schools, New Mills Original, Springbank Arts and other venues to show how to transform waste materials into useful, playful and, sometimes even beautiful objects.
Local artists will celebrate New Mills’ unique environment (and its status as a Transition Town) by creating a series of sculptures and installations especially for New Mills Community Festival (15th-30th September).
