Perennial is a nonprofit organization dedicated to building a culture of sustainability through creative reuse, a process of artistically transforming discarded goods into objects of worth. 

At Perennial’s community workshop, a staff of teaching artists, educators, and community partners offers educational programming to diverse populations, teaching more than 2,000 people last year. In addition to the workshop, Perennial’s store sells handmade DIY kits and eco-friendly supplies for reuse projects.

The teaching artists and educators have developed DIY projects that transform single salvaged bricks into functional objects. Community workshops to teach these creative reuse projects will be held in early 2018. A step-by-step instructional booklet is also in development and will be available for wider public distribution.
