“Give yourself the gift of garbage and don’t let your old rubbish go to waste – ReVive it,” she said.
“First prize wins $4000, and there is a $500 People’s Choice Award up for grabs. We are also bringing back the popular ReVive Artist Workshops with eminent artist Katy Goddard, so everyone can get dexterous with their debris.”
