Holiday Giveaway #2: UpCycle Creative Reuse Center
It’s been great having UpCycle Creative Reuse Center (CRC) in the neighborhood since they opened last summer. And we’re just so thrilled to feature UpCycle CRC today in our Eight Days of Del Ray Holiday Giveaway. Throughout the month of December, we’ve partnered with several members of the Del Ray Business Association to offer giveaways to our readers. Keep reading to find out how to enter!
UpCycle CRC, founded by Susan Miranda and Kelley Organek, is a community resource in Del Ray located at 1712 Mt. Vernon Avenue. They collect reusable items that are used for arts and crafts and learning opportunities.
In their store, they make the items available to the public at affordable prices. They sell fabrics and sewing notions, various papers and boards, wood bits, office supplies, and artists supplies. UpCycle also has a studio space where anyone can come to use their tools and supplies. They host classes and workshops to use their reuse collection for unique art and exploratory experiences.
Every week, during the drop-in studio hours, anyone, young and old, can work on a project like this George Washington Masonic Temple mosaic, an installation they featured in the first few weeks.
UpCycle has also teamed up with the Del Ray Yarn Bombers to create a public exhibit, a yarn bombed holiday tree, which is now on display on the Avenue to coincide with the Del Ray Business Association’s annual display.
