This summer, I spent 4 days teaching 9 students about how to create with recycled materials at the Columbia Art Center. We spent 3 hours a day making recycled notebooks, wallets, reusable sandwich wraps, lavender pillows, and sweater monsters. The students were eager to create with recycled materials and the favorite day ended up being the final day of the class where I brought in supplies and my sewing machine and the kids were free to create anything they wanted. One girl even brought her sewing machine along and helped out at the sewing station. I can't wait to teach this class again next summer.
