About the Catwalk:
Catwalk is a program in which students ranging from middle to high school are given a “trashformation” challenge: construct wearable art made from a variety of traditional and non-traditional materials. Participating students were given access to Resource Depot’s treasure trove of reusable materials and participated in weekly workshops, where they learn the basics of using a sewing machine, construction techniques, and receive guidance on how to incorporate the materials they choose. Through the use of nontraditional materials, the students gain environmental consciousness while thinking outside of the “trash”. This year the students designed their outfits inspired by a work of contemporary art from the Norton’s special exhibition.
A Remarkable Gathering: The Fisher Landau Family Collection.
About Resource Depot:
For over 20 years, Resource Depot's center for creative reuse has turned waste into artistic wonder by collecting and distributing excess materials to the benefit of classrooms, summer camps, art studios, and most importantly, the environment. Resource Depot collects donations from businesses and individuals and redistributes the items to teachers, artists, families, and other non-profit organizations that need them, encouraging creative, hands-on learning and innovation. Every day, Resource Depot encourages others to have fun with diverse materials, inspiring children, and adults to express themselves through creating. Resource Depot serves as an inspiration and resource to Palm Beach County’s next generation to value and care for the planet they’re inheriting through reuse and repurposing.https://www.resourcedepot.org/catwalkrunway
