Upcycling is the creative reuse of old objects or materials in ways that give them more value (the other side of recycling.) On Saturday, October 20, you can see for yourself from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Upcycle Fair, at Four Seasons Market in Wheat Ridge, highlights vendors creating amazing products with upcycled materials, as well as educational workshops on ways you can upcycle in your daily life. Music will be by the Lila Bloom Band.
Schedule of Workshops/Presentations
10:30 a.m. & 1:30 p.m.
Upcycling : Making rag rugs with thrift store/garage sales finds
In this 1 hour presentation, using inexpensive fabric finds, learn about making crocheted and knitted rag rugs with Calypso In Color owner Robbie Sattes. She will demonstrate the basics of making “yarn” from sheets of fabric and crochet and knit techniques for creating your own country-cottage style rag rugs.
