Festive crafting with Urban Repurpose

Last weekend I went to Urban Repurpose's inaugural upcycling workshop and it was awesome! Usually I'm facilitating workshops but I also love getting inspired by attending Crafternoons so this event was perfect! The event was super fun and the best part was I got to support Urban Repurpose and connect with new and kewl crafty peeps.

The workshop used materials found in the store and was facilitated by Taren and Gabriele from the West Vancouver Library. It was 2 hours of crafty awesomeness! First Tom introduced Urban Repurpose.

Then Taren introduced the craft and showed us how to upcycle tiles into Xmas ornaments.

Here are her sample projects... I love the silver leaf and all things glitter!

Our batch of basic supplies included tiles, paper, glitter and Mod Podge. We were set!

Here I am with Gabriele and Taren. I am definitely crafting with them again!

Sparkly and funky Xmas ornaments made from 'junk'!

Meanwhile they have quite the display in their window. Upcycled 'stuff' turned into a sleigh for Santa being led by Rudolph. Urban Repurpose really practices what they preach... Tom is always on the road collecting donations, their volunteers are amazing and they have a space in the back where creativity and ingenuity take upcycling to a whole new level.

A bit about the Xmas display...

Stay tuned for more upcycling workshops at Urban Repurpose... It was $10 well spent!
