The Repurpose Project reopened their Community Center and Event Space in January. So far they have held several great events: monthly clothing swaps, weekly kids craft, sci-fi scratch building, mosaic workshops, emergency vehicle maintenance classes, candyshoppe windchimes workshops, and a junkyard plantwalk.
They will be hosting a variety of other workshops and events in the upcoming months, including a celebration for Earth Day on April 22.
The Community Center aims to bring Gainesville together in creativity, art, music, and play, that has been disappearing in our modern world full of technology and consumerism.
For event and workshop information, follow the Repurpose Project on Facebook and Instagram (@TheRepurposeProject).You can also look for the calendars both inside the store near the register, and the red door of the event space.
If you are interested in sharing your knowledge about fixing or making, please email Events@RepurposeProject.org.
The Repurpose Project folks are excited to work with you in creating a space to share the craft you love.
