October 21 - Halloween Crafts and First Day of New Hours

Hi Reusers,

We are re-opening with our new hours starting on Saturday, October 21. For 2017 we will now be open from 1-5pm Saturdays only from October 21 - December 16 (closed on November 11).

Erika has also been scouring Pinterest for reused Halloween craft ideas and we will be re-opening with fun self-guided activities on October 21. Find the event on Facebook: Re-Opening + Halloween Workshops or on our webpage here: Upcoming Events. Look at all the fun ideas she found - it will be hard to choose only 3!

Happy Reusing!

Culture Days + New Hours

Hi Reusers!

We are collaborating with all the other tenants of the second floor of the Creative City Centre to offer a fun, interactive afternoon of art. Find more information on our Upcoming Events page or find the event on Facebook.

Apologies for anyone who has tried to visit us over the past couple of months. Due to some restructuring at our host organization we have had to keep the doors closed since mid-August. We are still closed but will be announcing updated hours very soon! We are now in need of more volunteers than ever to make sure we can be open consistent late hours and (potentially) weekends! If you would like to donate some time and energy to help us stay running for years to come, please head to our Volunteer page to learn more.

Happy reusing and hope to see you on October 1st!

Volunteers and Workshop Artists Needed!

Hi Reusers!

We are currently looking for volunteers and workshop artists to help activate our spaces. Stick with us and you can help support artists and arts educators in the city! Check out the two new pages on our blog and find out more:

Plan a Workshop With Us - we are currently seeking artists and other community members excited about reuse to bring workshop participants into our space to learn more about reuse practices in the arts. We welcome all art forms and even interdisciplinary talks about reuse, recycling, and eco art.

Volunteer - shifts range from 1-4 hours per week or per month depending on how much of your time you'd like to commit.

Re-Opening March 22!

Hi reusers!

I am very excited to announce that we will be re-opening our shop and holding our AGM at the Creative City Centre on Wednesday, March 22nd from 6-10pm. See our Upcoming Events page for more details or let us know you are coming by RSVPing on our Facebook Event.

This move could not have happened with the generous help of Members-at-Large: Sheena and Laureen, who helped to pack up our supplies mid-January then assisted with the move. Thanks, too, to their husbands Milan and Randy especially for their big help assisting us carry all those boxes of art books down the stairs at CARFAC and then up another flight to the Creative City Centre. Lots of heavy lifting!

The move happened on February 28th from 2-4:30pm (we made great time at only two and half hours!). We were lucky to have such beautiful, sunny, warm weather for the move. We were glad we didn't wait another week when the weather took a turn for the worse (terrible windy winter weather!).

We want to acknowledge the generous support of CARFAC Saskatchewan over the past year and half. You were amazing partners and we cannot thank you enough for all the work you did to support us!

We are excited about this new chapter in our life!

Happy Reusing and hope to see you on the 22nd!
