Upcycling clothing is the process of taking existing fabric and turning it into a new garment, either by changing it completely, or just a bit to give it new life. Denim, the fabric that makes up the ever-popular blue jean, has been wildly popular since its creation in France in the late seventeenth century. This, combined with its sturdy weave made from cotton, makes it a great option for upcycling!

With our monthly swaps, the Canmore Public Library has made a concerted effort to circulate items throughout our community rather than discarding them… but because jeans are so popular, we wind up with a lot of them! Rather than donate the more well-loved pairs to a place that will shred them for textiles, we decided to snag a few pairs for a craft. This month’s activity kit will help you to create a fun denim basket, no sewing or weaving required!

Reserve your free kit online today, and come by the Canmore Public Library starting  September 20th, 2022 to pick up your kit. 

For adults, one kit per person. If multiple people from your household would like a kit, please register each person separately.
