Many of the pieces are made from recyclable materials, including aluminium – one is a 4m aluminium can made from hundreds of cans and concealing a printmaking studio.

In another work, strings of aluminium cans reveal a lullaby, with the letters painstakingly hole-punched into the cans, lit in the evenings with LED lights.

There will also be a brightly coloured Recycling School, with a wise owl teacher and ‘student’ fish created from discarded air-compressor tanks and helium balloon tanks, and an adult pig and two winged piglets made from recycled steel.
