Transform natural, upcycled materials into decorations and gifts for family, friends, or yourself! It’s easy, fun and FREE.

At the final DEEPly Sustainable Series event of this fall, we will explore how to reduce waste, make meaningful objects for gifts and celebration, and learn useful crafting skills.

You can make earrings using natural seed beads from the Carrden, upcycle rope into wreaths, cut grocery bags into huge snowflakes, paint and apply ink transfers to Lake Erie stones, and string felt garlands.

Drop in and try your hand at one of these crafts any time between 1 and 4:30 pm on Friday 12/9 at the Office of Sustainability.

Our office is located on the basement level of the Tippie Alumni Center. If you enter through the doors on the south side of the building (opposite Montgomery Gym) our office is just inside on the right. We hope to see you there!
