Easels made!

With a bit of help from a friend we created 6 double-sided artist easels for the Creative Kids workshop out of recycled timber, courtesy of my neighbours who are currently renovating their house. The timber includes weather boards and flooring off-cuts. Sadly the screws, hinges and robe were purchased new. With a little more time I'm sure these could be found at a second-hand shop. None-the-less I am very proud of these recycled pieces – locally sourced and created.

The boards are measured up.

The discarded pieces have been saved.
With a coating of gesso these can become a 'canvas' or surface for painting on.

One-by-one they start to take shape.

Thanks Matt for your skills and support in building these – it is greatly appreciated
