Bring imagination for 'upcycling' at Lake Stevens Library

Originally published Jan. 4, 2017

Sure, recycling is a good thing to do for the environment, but why stop there? How about upcycling?

A term coined in the late 1990s, “upcycling” refers to using materials that might otherwise be recycled or wind up in the trash, adding a healthy dose of creativity and making something new and useful.

“Each month, we’ll have a different creative project,” said Jillian Coats, a staff member at the Lake Stevens Library. “We provide the materials. You bring the imagination. Just drop in, make things and leave with something awesome.”

Intended for teens, age 12-18, this upcycling, crafting, DIY program is scheduled for 3:30-4:30 p.m. on third Thursdays at the Lake Stevens Library, 1804 Main St. Upcoming projects include:

  • Jan. 19 - Hand-Bound Mini-Notebooks
  • Feb. 16 - Tiny Snow-Globe Necklaces/Keychains/Charms
  • March 16 - Make Your Own Buttons

This program is free to participants with funding provided by the Friends of the Lake Stevens Library.
