Art at the Market!
|June 23, 2013||Posted by Jeffrey Putney under Community Outreach, Workshops||
After last years successful “T-Shirt to Tote Bag” workshop at Urbana’s Market at the Square we were lucky enough to be invited back to do it again. And it was a huge success, we started with a massive pile of shirts and actually ran out. That means their are now more reusable bags in the world and less old T-shirts. It’s really a win-win for everyone. And the extra T-shirt scraps were even donated to The Bike Project to be used as rags. Here is a brief description of the workshop be did:
T-Shirt to Tote Bag
Expand your collection of re-usable shopping bags by converting an old t-shirt into a tote. No sewing skills required, pick a shirt and we will show you how to make the adjustments. Then, fill it with a harvest of Market goodies!
And a huge thanks to the Urbana Public Arts Program for sponsoring this event.
