The ABQ Recycled Art Fair 2018 takes place at the Open Space Visitor Centre at 6500 Coors Blvd. NW. from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday, April 14 and Sunday, April 15.
There will be over 30 booths from artists who use reclaimed materials in their work, and plenty of hands-on activities including some free make and take opportunities from Color Wheel Toys!
Keri Peihl stopped by the KRQE studio to demonstrate some of the fun ways to re-purpose and re-use materials to make art.
Using reclaimed materials in crafting is cheaper, more accessible and while not going to single-handedly undo environmental damage caused by pollution, it makes people more mindful of what goes to the landfill.
