Future Tenant is teaming up with Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore to present The Upcycle Make and Take, a workshop for creating original holiday ornaments out of recycled materials.
Future Tenant is celebrating the possibilities of creating beautiful art while also being kind to the earth. Surrounded by the repurposed artwork of Tree Pittsburgh’s Arbor Aid exhibit, The Upcycle Make and Take event allows you to channel your own inner artist! Guests will be able to get creative and do their own upcycling by using a variety of recycled materials to create holiday ornaments.
Materials for this event were generously donated by Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore.
According to their mission, “The Habitat for Humanity ReStore sells reusable house building and home improvement materials to the public…All proceeds from the sale of donations help place families in affordable shelter in the Greater Pittsburgh area.
