Activities & Events:

T-Shirt Waste Loom Demonstration with LikeMindedObjects
Bring your unwanted old t-shirts to weave!

Created in collaboration between LikeMindedObjects and artist Francesca Capone, the T-Shirt Waste Loom project empowers creative individuals to give new life and purpose to their discarded clothing. Volunteers will be doing a demonstration of the loom, so raid that bottom drawer t-shirt tomb and bring them down to the waterfront to be woven into wonderful new objects!

Silkscreen Upcycling by Wolfy Part II (Jef Scharf)
Donate your old clothing, totes, fabric and flags to Hudson Hall for silk-screening! 

Wolfy Part II (Jef Scharf) is a Hudson-based artist and DJ whose free silkscreened upcycled creations were a hit at Winter Walk last year. Wolfy returns to work his magic on old shirts, totes or flags at Waterfront Wednesdays, this time bringing his mobile silkscreen press to print designs celebrating the Hudson River Valley using images from the Hudson Hall archives.

A limited number of items will be silk screened before the event to be given away for free at the riverfront. Have old shirts, totes, or flags you would like to donate? Bring them to Hudson Hall before Friday, August 12!
