Love the arts? Hate landﬁll? The Resource Exchange is an amazing Philly-based non-profit entity that offers reclaimed materials for creative and environmentally resourceful making, teaching & living.
It’s a shop, a gallery, and a workshop space that promotes creative reuse, recycling, and resource conservation by diverting valuable materials from the waste stream and redirecting them to artists, builders, educators, and the general public. This month PGHW welcomes Karyn Gerred, RE’s Executive Director as our guest speaker. Karyn will discuss RE’s mission, evolution and why it is of so much value to Philly’s forward-facing fiber-loving community.
This is recycled velvet from a local factory. It’s beautiful and worth the trip to the Resource Exchange to pick some up!
