ITHACA, NY…Finger Lakes ReUse, a not-for-profit organization committed to transforming waste into resources through reuse, is hosting three Creative ReUse Workshops at the Ithaca ReUse Center (located at 214 Elmira Road, Ithaca, NY) on Thursday, October 24th, Thursday, November 21st and Thursday, December 12th. Each workshop will be open from 6:00 – 8:00 PM.
Join ReUse for one or all of these free Creative ReUse Workshops leading up to the Holiday season. Creative reuse is a great way to make a meaningful gift, holiday decorations, or creative expression, without making a negative global impact. Attendees can make a gift for a loved one or something cool for themselves with unique ReUse finds. Volunteers will be present to demonstrate card-making techniques and more. These workshops are free and open to everyone, no registration necessary, and plenty of free reuse materials will be provided!
The Ithaca ReUse Center will be open during the event with extended store hours. Parental supervision is required for younger children.
Creative ReUse events are made possible by generous support from the Tompkins County Recycling and Materials Management Division and the Park Foundation.
