Upcycling is the term used for taking a preloved item and transforming it - whether it’s for a new purpose altogether, or just to give it an ‘extreme makeover’.
There are two categories in the 2019 Resene Upcycling Awards:
Repurposed Upcycled item
An item that you find an entirely new purpose for. For example - turning your old baby cot into a desk for your little learners.
Redecorated Upcycled item
An item you give a new lease of life to by unleashing your creativity! For example - you turn that beaten-up, scratched coffee table into a new work of art!
