In this episode of Art Miles, explore how to build or supplement a supply of materials for collage and other art projects, at little or no cost, by salvaging things that are destined for recycling or discarding.

  • Before recycling or throwing away things made of paper (or similar materials), check whether some part of it is worth saving for artmaking
  • Organizing materials will keep them manageable, accessible and in good shape. Use labelled envelopes or flat bags to sort materials by colour or category (for example: maps, stickers, photographs, etc.)
  • Delicate items, like pressed leaves, may need a shallow box to protect them
  • When collecting plant materials in nature, gather only things that have fallen to the ground
