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 email@example.com. 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!
