Re-purpose with a Purpose Parties

We can bring one of the following classes to your home and/or business for any occasion….a Halloween or Birthday party, or we can also help you complete a Girl Scout badge!

  • Turn your dad’s old button-up dress shirts into an awesome art smock.  Keep your school clothes clean while you create.
  • Don’t throw away your mom’s old skirts!  We can turn them into a fun, play time CAPE!
  • We can turn any prom outfit, t-shirt, or dress up clothes into a scary, creepy un-dead ZOMBIE costume.
  • Need a headdress, but don’t know where to start?  We’ll take an old visor and turn it into a glorious celebration headpiece.
  • Learn the art and craft of dyeing and manipulating fabric! We’ll turn your old pillowcase into a beautiful batik or tie-dyed piece of art.
  • Don’t throw it away! There are ways to have fun and re-purpose your t-shirts.

These classes are custom priced.  They are based on the number of children and the length of time for the event.
