LOCAL EVENTS FOR 2017

JUNE 2017

17 June to 3 September: Rejuvenated Junk at the Heath Robinson Museum, Pinner. The latest exhibition is vibrant, colourful and fun for all the family – just the ticket for the school summer holidays. On show will be hats made from tin cans, bags from ring-pulls, a cheese platter from a flattened bottle, woven rolled newspaper baskets and boxes and earrings from bottle tops – every object in the exhibition used to be something else. The inspiration for the exhibition came from William Heath Robinson himself. In 1935  Heath Robinson created a series of drawings called Rejuvenated Junk, showing new uses for unwanted objects. Ten of these were used to illustrate an article called At Home with Heath Robinson, written by KRG Browne for The Strand Magazine. The exhibition features several of these original drawings together with a stunning collection of recycled and upcycled artefacts from 33 countries around the world,provided by knowtrash.
