Re-Up Pop Up

Re-Up Pop-up Workshop

Learn to Reuse, Repurpose, Repair and Upcycle everyday things to take action on climate change!

The Re-Up Pop-Up Workshop offers children and youth opportunities to have fun and learn skills while reducing our footprint on the planet. Hosted by skilled and experienced professional educators and youth workers, the workshop is carefully crafted to provide authentic, hands-on learning with developmentally appropriate activities that invite people of all ages and abilities to participate in creating a better future together.

Activities include sewing and stitching recycled fashion, hammering and hitching old machine parts and building materials to make functional furniture and amazing art objects, repairing electronics and mending torn clothing. For first week of August in partnership with the YMCA camp Riveredge will be spending the entire week with various campers ranging from 5-17 to teach the values of our pop-up. We would like for the Saturday, August 15th to do a showcase of what we've learned and invite the young people and families for a 90 minute workshop of all that we learned that week.
