Have you ever discovered your favorite sweater has emerged from the laundry a few sizes smaller? Well don't throw that sweater away, it's now felted and can be recreated into a whole new useful item! Ever heard of 'upcycled'? Upcycle is another name for recycling when you re-invent something into other very useful items. We've come up with about 30 wonderful ideas to inspire your creative side. Where will your imagination take you? We're not talking just coasters and pot holders!

Participants will see a list of projects that can be made, some decorative techniques you can use, and be able to make and take an item home. Materials will be provided, however feel free to bring along some of your own.

You'll rethink your closets, yard sales, second hand stores and sale racks!
