ReCreate provides sustainable Maker Education.  By diverting clean usable waste from local businesses and combining it with high-tech tools, ReCreate delivers hands-on, project-based learning in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math.  ReCreate empowers our region's youth by helping students learn vital skills necessary to compete and lead the 21st century workforce.   Simultaneously, ReCreate diverts over 60 tons annually of materials no longer needed by regional businesses.

EcoArt Studio

The EcoArt Studio is ReCreate’s airy, spacious home base. Here we host birthday parties, field trips, kids’ workshops and camps, as well as classes for adults. We also offer Fun Friday and Family Projects for artists and crafters of all ages. We supply the super cool diverted materials, you supply the creativity!

Education

This year ReCreate launched our GeniusMobile.  It is a Maker Space on wheels designed to be hands-on project based learning to schools in our region. 

 Each year more than 15,000 local students participate in More Art! Less Waste!, a lively program we take to local elementary schools. Our pre-school and kindergarten visits, as well as the field trips we host at our EcoArt Studio, also promote the “3 R’s”: reduce, reuse, recycle.

ReUse Warehouse

ReCreate collects perfectly good, incredibly cool—but no longer needed—materials from local businesses and sells them to artists, crafters, sewers, knitters, costume-makers, artists, and anyone with a project. Our goods are so inspiring you may never walk into another commercial art supply store again—especially since our prices are so very low!

Community Events

Look for our colorful, can’t-miss-it Rolling ReCreate van or GeniusMobile at fairs, festivals, and special events held by local businesses such as IKEA or Whole Foods. We set up a table, provide materials (diverted, of course) and tools for a free, on-the-spot art-making experience. Armed with glue guns, good humor, and boundless creativity, our fun facilitators can bring out the artistic genius in anyone. Be sure to stop by!
