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 developed DIY projects that transform single salvaged bricks into functional objects. Several community workshops were held in early 2018 to teach these creative reuse projects. A step-by-step instructional booklet was also developed and made available for wider public distribution.
