1000 ideas for creative reuse

Extreme Craft will soon write a new book in their "1000" series. Titled 1000 Ideas for Creative Reuse, it will be a book filled with 1000 examples of craft, art and design made out of repurposed, reused and recycled materials. The book will be bristling with amazing contributions from artists and crafters around the world.

Some categories to submit for will be:

Paper Craft– Consigning paper to the recycling bin is a shame. Do you make interesting things out of paper?

Art– Does your art involve clever reuse of materials in installation, sculpture, collage, painting or other media?

Jewelry and accessories– all kinds of personal adornment, handbags, belts, hats, etc.

Clothing– seeking all kinds of clothing mash-ups, stitch-ups, and makeovers.

Fiber and fabric- renovated soft goods made from recycled or vintage linens, quilts, fabrics, fibers, sweaters, yarns, rugs?

Housewares and furnishings– repurposed furniture, ceramics, serving dishes, utensils and miscellaneous home goods.

Houses, interiors, and environments– Is your living space made of reused materials? Have you made a visionary environment out of recycled materials?

GeekCraft and ManCraft– Do you make repurposed items with geek appeal? What about traditionally “manly” items such such as grills, antler furniture and armchair go-karts?

UnClassifiable– also encouraging the submission of work that doesn’t fit into any of the above boxes.

The Call for Entries:
The deadline is January 5, 2009, but early submissions are HIGHLY encouraged.
