We all know about recycling by now, but are you familiar with upcycling? Upcycling is the creative reuse of old or discarded items. It's a win/win situation. We help clean up the earth and end up with cool art. If you want to check our upcycling for yourself, make plans to be in Poughkeepsie this Saturday.

Fallkill Creative Works presents Upcycle Fair: Every Day Art at the Poughkeepsie Trolley Barn, 489 Main Street, from 11 am - 6 pm this Saturday, Aug. 13. The Upcycle Art Fair will feature vendors, demonstrations, hands-on learning, performances by Paper Heart Puppets and upcycled instrument maker and musician Ken Butler. Quilting, mosaics, papermaking and more. Save the Earth, make beautiful things, and have fun at the same time.
