Garth Johnson of Extreme Craft Garth take the Center Stage and talks about The History of Creative Reuse. While researching for his book, Garth found was a rich history of reuse and recycling among such cultures as the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans, Medieval Christians and many others, a subject worthy of their own book. This lecture shows that our society has a lot of work to do just to catch up to our ancestors.
