Exciting news: Trash Mash-Up — the San Francisco-based organization that leads workshops on how to create art from trash — is coming to Brooklyn!

Trash Mash-Up

TMU, run by sisters Bridget and Jessica McCracken, will be in town working with Women in Need, a local nonprofit that provides housing, skills training and other resources to homeless women and their families. Stay tuned for updates. You can follow both groups on Facebook here and here.

 

Trash Mash-Up

Hope you’re having a trashtastic Halloween! Beth Terry of Fake Plastic Fish sent me this holiday appropriate link to Trash Mash-Up.

Maskostume

According to the San Francisco after-school program’s Google Page:

Trash Mash-Up is a community art project. Using disposable materials, collected before they enter the waste stream, participants construct “Maskostumes” which are original pageant masks and costumes inspired by traditions from around the world. This project reduces waste and inspires people to see each other and our environment in a new way.

Absolutely adorable. Thanks, Beth!
