About The Event
Come create some inspiration with upcycled materials. A local artist prepped a set of encyclopedias for us to create inspirational book boxes together. Participants will be given new/shared/recycled materials and motivation to deco-podge their inspirations into already hand-cut, up-cycled encyclopedias. While we will have plenty of mixed-media and upcycled material for you to create your box we urge participants to bring materials from home that they would like to share with the group or add to their own box. All proceeds from this workshop support Friends & Faire.
Instructor's Bio: Established in 2018 as The Trailer of Trash, we started initially as a community mobile Repair Cafe and Upcyclery. We evolved slowly and intentionally into the landfill diversion and waste redistribution community-driven organization we are today. About 60% of the stuff we collect is freely redistributed back to our community, another 30% is upcycled, the remaining 10% is fixed and reused. Said simply, we keep things moving. We are engaging, connecting, and promoting what people are already doing to reduce consumption and divert waste by connecting the dots in Maui's circular economy. We firmly believe that when we tend to our things, we tend to each other.
All materials are included and class will be held at Friends & Faire at 1980 Main st. #4 Wailuku, HI 96793 (Behind Native Intelligence- free parking available).
