Ragfinery, 1421 N. Forest St., is sponsoring its second Upcycle Challenge, which will culminate in a Red Carpet “Show-off” on May 1. Individuals and teams who take the challenge will be tasked with turning an old wedding dress into creative accessories, clothing, or anything else they can dream up.
Participants will have the opportunity to share their creations at the event’s “Show-off,” where they can wear it, roll it, or drag it down the red carpet.
A panel of judges will determine the winners and the top three submissions will receive cash or gift prizes. The event has four goals: bring attention to reducing fibers in the waste stream; create awareness about repurposing; introduce people to Ragfinery, and community fun.
Participants must register in advance and complete their submission by Friday, April 24. Cost to enter is $20. Details: 360-738-6977, ragfinery.com.
