Press Release: Upcycle Event Shows You How to Make Art and Save the Landfill

The Richmond Art Center is proud to announce the 3rd Annual Upcycle, a maker festival for the whole family to create, see and learn about the art of upcycling. This free event will take place, rain or shine, on Saturday, April 25 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.

Upcycling workstations will feature hands-on activities that creatively re-use materials otherwise headed for the landfill. Learn how to screen print patches, make bags from old ties and denim, create mosaics, weave rag rugs and create metal objects and recycled jewelry.

This event will also feature activities by numerous participating organizations, including Urban Tilth and Bridge Art Space. Healthy snacks will be provided. Kids under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

This event is generously sponsored by: Kaiser Permanente
