Donated Materials Needed For Upcycle

Our third annual Upcycle maker event is just one month away — Saturday, April 25 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm.

We’re busy planning a full afternoon of art-making for the whole family. A dozen upcycle workstation will feature hands-on activities to let you turn materials that  would otherwise be headed for the landfill into art. Cool, right?

Well, we need a little help sourcing some of these materials and figured our amazing and creative community would be a great place to start.

Do you have any of the following items that you could donate?

  • Men’s Ties
  • Zip ties
  • Records/LPs
  • Cardboard
  • Art/craft paper that can be reused for sculpture or collage
  • Duct tape (silver & colored)
  • Yarn
  • Wire & covered wire
  • Drinking Straws – all kinds
  • Hole & craft punches
  • Twine

We’ll be collecting items over the next few weeks. Contact our Visitor Service Coordinator, Nicole Robinson at 510-620-6778 or with your donation and she can help you coordinate.
