Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse promotes resource conservation, creativity, and community engagement through material reuse.
... and makes something beautiful from reclaimed materials!
Happy April, everyone. We're delighted to welcome Earth Day Month and the spotlight on conservation and sustainability that comes with it. We hope that you'll join us in celebrating a sustainable future!
Speaking of making beautiful things from reclaimed materials, check out this beautiful Creative Reuse themed sampler made by Dr. Sam Gardner, made completely out of materials found in the shop.
Make note: the shop will be closed this upcoming Sunday, April 5th for Easter. We will, however, be hanging out at the Allegheny Wine Mixer that evening for...
Open Studio Night is Thursday, April 9th from 6-8 pm. Creative Reuse Open Studio Night is a monthly after-hours gathering for creative minds 18+! Pay-what-you-can, potluck, and BYOB. The bulk section is free to use for projects you are making that night, as are the tools of the trade. You can bring a half-completed project to finish, or come empty handed and start something new. It's what you make of it (and we know you will make it awesome).
Our April Greeting Card Sale will run Monday, April 13th - Monday, April 27th. Fill a bag with assorted greeting cards for just $5! Cover all your greeting card needs for every holiday, birthday, and whatnot in the coming year - all at once! You might be tempted to call it "the ultimate time-saving lifehack" or maybe just "the best deal in Pittsburgh" - either way, you'd be right.
Volunteer Orientation will be on Sunday, April 26th from 4:30-5:30 pm. Learn all about how to become a Creative Reuse volunteer at this month's orientation. Fill out an application here to get the process started!
upcoming outreach programs...
Our Programs team will be out doing variations of our Reuse-a-Palooza activity at several public events this month (details below, in the left sidebar of this newsletter, and on our website). Reuse-a-Palooza is a hands-on exploratory art activity where participants are invited to create with a large array of reclaimed materials. The possibilities for creations during a Reuse-a-Palooza are nearly endless! Participants exercise their creative muscles and learn, hands-on, about reuse.
March was a fun and action packed month!
