'The History of the Future’ Student Line

Over the past couple months 6 students from 4 schools collectively created this entirely upcycled fashion line here at The Project Shop. The Apprentices had such an amazing experience creating these garments, and they want to pay it forward for others to join in, as well! With much excitement the Apprentices decided to Auction the fashion line to raise funds in support of our ReWear Open Studio Community Days. With your support we are aiming to raise $2,000! Half of the Auction sales will go directly to the apprentice artists and the other half will go towards sustaining these Community Days as a collaboration between Carbondale Arts and ReWear Upcycling Initiative at The Project Shop.


The auction and fundraising effort will culminate at the Opening Reception for the student’s drawings showing at POWERS ART CENTER April 5 - May 4th. The POWERS ART CENTER is generously showcasing their work and hosting this FIRST FRIDAY reception with all pieces from the Fashion Line on display for the evening. Join us for a fun filled evening to meet the students, celebrate their process!

In a world on the brink, we choose unity and hope by re-imagining garments of the past, constructed from the discarded waste of our present into looks for our future.
