Earth Week: Textile Scrap Workshop: Design Challenge!

Material For the Arts

Are you a designer who loves a creative challenge? Do you ever think about upcycling and reducing waste, or how to give new life to discarded materials? Do you want a chance to win $100?

If so, Materials for the Arts (MFTA) is looking for YOU!

In partnership with the NY Department of Sanitation, MFTA has launched a textile scrap reuse project and is seeking creative design ideas from Parsons students. Come for a night of fun at this interactive and exploratory workshop led by MFTA, where you'll be charged with creating a design idea using their collection of textile scraps and materials. Up to 5 cash prizes will be awarded to the best design ideas!

All materials (and snacks) will be provided, all you need to bring is your creativity and your inspiration.

When: Thursday, April 13th 6:30pm-8:30pm

Who: Parsons students of all design disciplines are welcome!

Where: Materials for the Arts (33-00 Northern Boulevard,3rd Floor, Queens, NY 11101)

For those interested, a group will meet at 5:50pm at the entrance to The New School University Center to travel to MFTA together. Otherwise, we will see you there!
