Val Hunt’s work has been shown in exhibitions around the U.K., Denmark, Japan, United Emirates, U.S.A. and toured overseas with the British Council. She has works in many permanent collections.
Val won the Gold Award for specialist media in the Craft and Design magazine awards in 2014 and was runner-up the year before.
She retrieves those everyday things we throw away and presents them in a new and fascinating dimension. Her work recycles a diverse selection of rubbish but her favourite material is drinks can metal. From this she creates innovated sculptures, wall hangings, hats and jewellery. Val has two solo touring exhibitions, Reincarnated Rubbish and the environmental exhibition Endangered and Extinct. These exhibitions aim to inspire, inform and encourage everyone to experience the fun of creative recycling.
