Runway Event at Resource Depot

Friday, April 24

7pm

Aspiring designers from elementary to high school model their creations made during our Catwalk program, where participants were given a “trashformation” challenge - construct wearable art made from a variety of traditional & non-traditional materials.

Outfits will be on display in Resource Depot's GalleRE space

Tuesday, April 28  - Saturday, May 9 

Funded in part by:

Special information for Catwalk participants:

Participating students are given access to Resource Depot’s treasure trove of reusable materials and participate in weekly workshops, where they learn the basics of using a sewing machine, construction techniques, and receive guidance on how to incorporate the materials they choose.  Through the use of nontraditional materials, the students gain environmental consciousness while thinking outside of the “trash”.  End design(s) must be made with at least 50% percent reused material.
