Creative Reuse Education

We at Thistle believe that education is central to how we fulfill our mission of inspiring sustainable creativity and living. Whether we are educating in our shop by selling pre-loved materials or more directly through upcycling and creative reuse workshops and events - we know that an informed and educated citizenry will get creative, sustainably.
Reduce. Reuse. Raise hell.

Reuse Rowdy Art Camp

Environmental Art Camps for Kids

Reuse Rowdy is a project of Thistle Creative Reuse. To sign up for a Reuse Rowdy Art Camp or to learn more visit the website.

What is Reuse Rowdy Art Camp?

  • Reuse Rowdy Art Campers will reimagine the world around them. Campers will learn environmental stewardship, resource conservation, and resourcefulness through the lens of art and creativity. Campers will create art and crafts by reusing materials that might have otherwise gone to waste and they will learn how to become empowered environmental stewards. Campers will have a blend of structured projects and free-create time to explore the world of reuse materials.
