ReCreate Competition

Calling all budding artists!!

Sunday 26 April saw the launch of ReCreate 2009, the first recycled art competition hosted by The Settlement in Maryport.

The competition is open to all residents of Cumbria and covers 3 age categories:

  • Primary - under 12 years
  • Secondary - 12-18 years
  • Adult - over 18.

The competition is looking for a funky and imaginative piece that reflects individual styles, but also demonstrates the reuse or recycling of materials.

ReCreate kicks off on Sunday 26 April with an exhibition by a local artist and a recycled workshop at The Settlement, Maryport between 12 and 3pm. Come along for inspiration and tips on how to make your own masterpiece.

Entry into the competition was free and is now closed
