CRAFT UP COLLINWOOD
For several years, Upcycle Parts Shop has been transforming vacant spaces with materials that were destined for the landfill. All their projects get the community involved in creating and installing the art. With a series of craft days, residents created sidewalk art and decorations to beautify vacant storefronts. One of these efforts actually resulted in a commercial sale!
