What exactly is UpCycle?
UpCycle CRC is a community resource. We collect reusable items that are used for arts & crafts and learning purposes. We organize these items and make them available to the public at affordable prices. We have fabrics and sewing notions, various papers and boards, wood bits, office supplies and artists supplies. For a complete list of the items we may have in stock, please visit Our Collection page. We also have a studio space where you can come to use our tools and supplies for your projects. Our classes and workshops utilize our reuse collection for unique art and exploratory experiences.
Find us on the 2nd level: down the driveway, up the wooden stairs, and through the double doors.
