Workshops for Adults

Repurposed Art Workshop

I’ve been repurposing since I was a little girl, waaaay before the term became popular!  So what exactly does “repurposing” mean?  Basically, it’s just using things “previously loved” to make new items!

Do you wish you know how to repurpose?  Do you wish you were more creative?  Don’t know how to start?  If you’d like to learn how to repurpose items you normally throw away – things you might already have in your home – you’re in the right place!  I designed this workshop just for you!

Whether you’re in a city in Collin County, TX area and able to attend one of my workshops in person, OR you take one of my online tutorials, beginners will be treated to making hands-on, simple crafts, and more experienced crafters will learn the techniques I’ve learned over many years of trial and error.  And I’ll even throw in some really interesting and current environmental facts and statistics to remind us about WHY we’re repurposing.  I’ll also share some of the more intricate items I’ve made with various repurposed materials to inspire your own ideas – I want you to blossom in the repurposing world!

Service Project  Workshop

Does your group have a passion for serving others? In this workshop I will teach you how to make gifts from repurposed items (using things “previously loved” to make new items) that can easily be made in large quantities with members of your group. They will be guaranteed to warm hearts and show others you care about them, and will be suitable for donations to:

    • Nursing homes
    • Homeless shelters
    • Children’s hospitals
    • Veteran’s hospitals
    • Service men and women overseas


*Items to be made need to be discussed and decided before the workshop.
