Mark Your Calendar and Check Your Attic

Saturday, August 14
2 PM - 5 PM
On the grounds of SECCA
(750 Marguerite Dr.)
during Community Day

Last year, Piedmont Craftsmen brought Durham artist Bryant Holsenbeck to Winston-Salem to design a recycling labyrinth using household items. The experience was so positive that Piedmont Craftsmen is partnering with SECCA to create another labyrinth.

Inspired by Bryant's vision, this time around the labyrinth will be outside and much larger. During the Swap-A-Thon event, volunteers from Piedmont Craftsmen will help guide visitors through creating and experiencing the labryinth.

The community is asked to bring useable household items (non-clothing) that they can incorporate into the labyrinth while walking through it. (Please limit the size of the items to be no larger/heavier than a microwave oven. If you can't carry it easily, then it is too big.)

Visitors may also select one item to take home that they can use, making the labyrinth an ever-changing installation as items are added and taken away.

At the close of the project, the labyrinth will be disassembled and left-over items will be donated to local non-profit organizations, such as Habitat ReStore, Rescue Mission, and Goodwill Industries.

This event is FREE.
