We’ll be doing a live demonstration at ReStore’s Upcycling seminar this Sunday. Come learn how to make one-of-a-kind furniture as we transform an old coffee table into an upholstered ottoman!
Admission is $5.00. Register here.
What is ReStore?
ReStores accept donations of new and used building materials from homeowners, contractors, retailers and manufacturers, and sell them to the public at greatly reduced prices. Money raised through sales covers 100% of the cost of Habitat for Humanity’s Greater Vancouver operations.
Habitat for Humanity provides affordable homes to families in need, but it also has an environmental mission very similar to Our Social Fabric’s:
Our disposable society has continually been told that it’s best to get rid of the “old” to make way for the “new”. We know “new” is still necessary in many circumstances, but we also know the value in recycling, reusing, repurposing, and redesigning what may be old, outdated or currently unusable items into beautiful works of art.
Please join us, and check out ReStores’ upcoming seminars, too!
