Upcycle Bazaar

King County Makers

The future of our product-driven world is to make new things from the old. The Upcycle Bazaar features the work of our local makers who upcycle materials to keep them in use as long as possible! You’ll also be able to browse upcycled products, make sock puppets with repurposed materials, and learn how small changes can make a huge difference. 

 

Bring your stuff for Upcycling/Recycling!

In partnership with our makers and Threadcycle, we will be collecting the following items: 

clean textiles, socks, mittens, gloves, climbing rope 

We’ll also provide light repair of clothing items (no tailoring) on a first come, first served basis. We’ll be doing repairs from 10am – 3:30pm. Most repairs take 30min to 1 hour, so plan your visit accordingly. Not all repairs will be able to be made the day of the event.
