CHEERS TO THE NEW YEAR FROM RECYCLE UTAH AND GALLERY MAR

Recycle Utah

PARK CITY – Gallery MAR, located at 580 Main Street, will host a special Recycled Bottle Cap Pin Making Workshop on Monday, December 28th from 4 pm until 7 pm as a fundraiser for Recycle Utah.  Inspired by Mexican and Southwestern art, local teacher and artist Kathleen Briley will demonstrate how to create beautiful decorative “wearable” pins out of recycled bottle caps.

Recycle Utah will provide the bottle caps and pins, all you need to bring is your imagination and creativity. Refreshments will be served and the workshop is free with a $5 donation to Recycle Utah.

Maren Bargreen, owner of Gallery MAR, opens up her gallery to local non-profits for fundraising events on a monthly basis and this month it’s for Recycle Utah.

“It’s my way of giving back to the community and supporting important causes like recycling and environmental conservation. Thanks to Recycle Utah I am able to recycle everything at Gallery MAR – especially all of the shipping and packing materials I use.”

This community workshop is for all ages, children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult. Pre-register early – space is limited.
