At my local museum, they held an exhibition which was based on using recycled materials to make different things. They held a competition between local schools to use recycled materials to make a useable chair, in my school we were put into groups to participate in this competition. The group I was in had our work entered into the main competition and we won. So, our work was put on display in the exhibit. I went to the exhibit in the summer holidays during 2016 when our work was on display. Making the chair took a long time especially because we had to make it strong enough to hold a person's weight however it was worth it because of the amazing result. I have seen people making things out of recycled materials again however not a chair as we did in the competition.
It was great to see our work on display as we put a lot of time and effort into it, it was also interesting to see what you could make with varied materials and I would love to try some of the techniques. The exhibition was quite small so it would be nice to have more on display as it was very interesting. I would recommend looking into more events similar to this one in your local area. I learnt a lot of ways to recycle materials and in what countries they mainly do this in.
