We can’t wait for our 9th annual Lost+F(o)und fundraiser on Saturday, October 12th…mostly, we can’t wait to see what folks make for the reDESIGN Challenge!

Over the last eight years, we’ve asked artist, makers, and designers to take commonly discarded items and transform them into something new to auction off at Lost + F(o)und. Participants have worked with bed frames, ladders, drawers, and more and created everything from a rocking horse to a slide guitar!

This year we want to kick-off the reDESIGN Challenge by inviting five teams to test their creative abilities in a competition-style event to transform trash into new and beautiful items. All spots are filled for the competition, but we want you to come and enjoy the process!

Join us at any point during the challenge to check up on the teams projects and see what they are creating! See the event timeline below to decide when you want to stop by:

Event Timeline:
  • 10:00-10:45am, Design: Teams will receive similar salvaged materials and a general design problem, like, “Create a home-good that can hang on a wall from these materials.” Then, they’ll have the first 30 minutes to work on their design.
  • 10:45- 12:00pm, Create: They’ll have a little over an hour to create their design.
  • 12:00pm, Judging: Our expert judge will score each team’s creations based on a design rubric, which will be developed prior to the event and shared with the teams before they begin their work.
Come one, come all:  This event is meant to bring people together around the excitement of creative reuse! Even if you’re not designing, come to the shop to witness the process and see what the teams create. Think of yourself as part of our “live studio audience!”
