What is creative reuse?
Creative reuse is a process of transforming what-would-be-waste materials into new things. These repurposed materials are not only more accessible (you can find them around the house or in your neighbours recycling bin) but they are far more more inspiring, meaningful, and sustainable alternatives to traditional supplies.

What is SUPPLY Victoria?
Creative reuse centres like SUPPLY Victoria accept donations of used materials to divert them from the landfill and put into the hands of artists, students, and teachers. SUPPLY Victoria’s mission is to redistribute used art, office, and school supplies and offer creative reuse classes in order to craft a more sustainable, equitable, and creative community.

Who is the instructor?
Ashley Howe is the founder of SUPPLY Victoria. She is an artist, DIY’er and environmental activist that has been hosting fun, hands-on workshops working with repurposed materials for the last five years with groups like the Surfrider Foundation, North Park Neighbourhood Association, Girls Rock Camp Victoria, and the ReBuilding Center.
