2024 Upcycled Fashion Show in Wolfeboro NH at Kingswood Arts Center

April 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Recycle, repurpose and re-imagine your next outfit by participating in the 2024
Upcycled Fashion Show!
Governor Wentworth Arts Council and Makers Mill are teaming up – again – to bring
back this fabulously fun and creative Lakes Region NH event to be held Saturday April
27, 2024 at the Kingswood Arts Center in Wolfeboro.
The Upcycled Fashion Show correlates with Earth Day celebrations taking place around
the globe and is designed to celebrate ingenuity, community spirit and environmental
awareness. Taking worn or used materials and transforming them into something new is
the hallmark of upcycling and a chance for artists throughout New Hampshire, and
greater New England, to exercise and showcase their imaginations in curious and new
ways.
Last year's exciting show included outfits crafted from packaging materials to
deconstructed linens and draperies as well as accessories fashioned from repurposed
denim jeans and even juice pouches. The imaginative opportunities are endless!
Designers of all ages and experience levels are welcome to participate but they must
register ahead of the event. The event will also include a juried Upcycled Art Market.
In preparation for the 2024 Upcycled Fashion Show, Makers Mill will host several
inspiring upcycled fashion workshops at their Wolfeboro location including Designing &

Sewing on March 9, Closures & Embellishments on March 23 and Finishing &
Accessories on April 6.
Please visit the GWAC website and social media pages for additional details on all our
events, as well how to become involved as a member, as a volunteer, or as a partner
organization. Learn more at governorwentworthartscouncil.org
