During December we invite the women from our partner agencies to visit our ReUse Studio and Wood Shop at Perennial. We set up three different stations for crafting, so participants can create gifts for themselves and others.

This year we made Wood Scrap Jewelry Hangers, Woven Coasters, and Bottle Cap Pins.

Participants got to explore our space, enjoy tasty treats, and learn how to creatively reuse many different materials!

Materials used: Wood Scraps, window screens, salvaged hardware, t-shirt yarn, cardboard looms, bottle caps, book pages.

Skills taught:Wood working, weaving, hand sewing, paper cutting, assemblage

A participant from Center for Women in Transition let us know that she learned “How to bring my craft skills back out” and “a new coping skill.”
