Free Crafting: Upcycle Collective

Free Crafting: Upcycle Collective is a working group that is open to the Trent/Flemming/Peterborough community. We are Free Market-focused and work to educate students and community members about self-suffciency, eco-consciousness and ethical consumerism by reducing the stigma of used goods and hosting DIY events. If you want to learn a new skill or have something to teach, come hang out! You are always welcome!


In 2016/17 we hosted Mean Girls Movie Night, where we taught people how to sew and had some fun hanging out with popcorn! We also teamed up with Truly B Me for Self Love Week in our patch-making and journey to self love sharing circle.

Each week we also do DIY/sit and stitches hosted in the OPIRG office Fridays @ 4PM. Want to get involved? Join our Facebook group or the newsletter and keep an eye out for our radical posters! You can also email us at Don’t know where to start? Here’s a challenge: Find something at the Free Market and bring it to our next meeting to see how we can help you turn it into something fantastic!
