Priceless and Worthless is a mini recycling exhibition where students from my course take something worthless and upcycle it so that it becomes priceless. There was no set brief really, we just had to find the beauty in something that needed a new lease of life. It's really fun and we all ate cake, drank tea and socialised with students from all levels of my course. My piece was a rosette that i put together using applique with odd sorts of fabric and embroidery thread i had collected from charity shops.
