Collective Upcycle

Collective Upcycle is a pop-up boutique of reused art & handmade goods by Cleveland artists that we set up for a few weeks during the winter holiday season, it’s a perfect place to buy all your holiday gifts.  In the fall we invite area upcyclists to apply and we use a jury process to make final selections.  We enjoy popping up in a new spot each year, activating a vacant space and giving an area some new life.  Collective Upcycle provides economic opportunity to local upcyclists, both seasoned pros and those new to upcycling.  Upcycle Parts Shop organizes and staffs the shop and artist items are sold on consignment with the majority of the sale going back to the artist.  Collective Upcycle is a great opportunity for newer artists to easily sell their items without having to pay craft show entry fees or figure out how to merchandise only a few products. 

Space Rental For Artist-Led Workshops

Another way we’d like to support you, artist, is by offering space to host a workshop in.  You can invite your friends, family or guests and charge for your workshop or not.  We’ll have a staffer present but we’ll stay out of your way and we’ve got lots of scissors and glue guns to share.  We charge just $50 for up to 2 hours of studio rental and $25/hour after that.  You can bring food or drinks into the space to make your participants feel comfortable.  We can’t wait to see what kind of cool projects you’ll be sharing with others!
