July 17 ::: Iron City Upcyclery + Give and Take at the Polish Hill Arts Festival


. . .

Join Iron City Upcyclery and Give and Take at the upcoming Polish Hill Arts Festival on Sunday, July 17 for Give and Take's kickoff celebration!

Give and Take is a new organization in Pittburgh whose goal is to "adopt your pre-loved clothes and create opportunities to get them into new, hopeful hands."

Do you have pre-loved clothing that you no longer want or need?

Read on...

From noon to 9 p.m. at the festival, Give and Take will have a donation/information space set up. Give and Take invites anyone to "(p)lease be a part of the project by bringing an item or bag of clothing to donate to the collection we're assembling for public use. We'll be using your donations at public workshops and clothing swaps; to showcase ideas around the city for reusing and repurposing clothes; and to serve as a free resource for people in need. In thanks, we'll have a special gift waiting for you."

Iron City Upcyclery will also be joining the Give and Take team from 1:00-4:00 p.m. at the festival! We'll be providing information about the art and craft of upcycling as well as demonstrating hands-on how you can re-fashion your old clothing using simple sewing techniques, therefore creating something totally new! Visitors to our space will also have the opportunity to try simple upcycling techniques for themselves (we'll provide all the materials you'll need). There will also be a sign-up sheet for an in-depth upcycling workshop with Iron City Upcyclery + Give and Take this coming September!

It's all happening on Sunday, July 17 at the Polish Hill Arts Festival! See you there!
