Sunday, April 19th, 1-4 PM Georgetown, MA (directions w/b sent to registered attendees)

(Includes $25 materials fee)

Would you like to learn how to make elegant fashion from recycled materials? Have the opportunity to work with a renowned painter and reclamation artist that will inspire your ideas and bring them to reality? And all while supporting two sustainable non-profit organizations?

Learn new techniques, how to deal with several provided recycled materials and those you bring from your own waste-stream. You will handle several different materials, and learn how to actualize them into differing design formats for fashion; this includes jewelry, accessories, and household items.


At the end of this workshop you will have a pair of earrings, the beginnings of a garment or accessory, and a toolbox of ideas for future projects. Bring your questions, a journal for notes and your sense of humor!

After you register with PAYPAL, you will receive instructions, directions, and a list of materials to collect.

3 hour Workshop, some materials provided. Minimum of 6 students, maximum of 12 students.


Please bring a shoebox worth, or more, of materials you can recycle from your own waste-stream to make fashionable art.

Your fashions could be featured in an annual runway event!

Happy New Year from the Silver Bullet!

SB1.1.15Happy New Year to all!! Yes! I have finished the exterior of my tiny house. I’m taking a well-deserved break for a month for my health. I’ve been at it 7 days a week after work, on weekends since June of 2013 and I need to rest a bit before I tackle the rest of my interior construction.

Its barely been a week and already I’m itching to get inside and finish my water systems and electricity. But I made a promise to my physician and I’m going to keep it. Hmmm, what can I do…

First, I’m accepting the TerraBluTeams 52-week sustainable lifestyle design challenge for 2015!!! You can too, and I highly recommend it. Check it out here, and follow the blog which covers a new sustainability lifestyle design element every Wednesday!

Secondly, I recently read a delightful brand new book on “stuff” by designer, Chris Thomas. I found it on one of my FB tiny house sources. I would call this the adult version of the “Story of Stuff”, accept it is entitled, wait for it… You Have Too Much Shit. I must have laughed continuously through all 18 pages. It’s great. What a motivator!

Thirdly, I started on a ruthless campaign to get down to less than 500 possessions. That includes dishes, tools, clothes, jewelry, artwork – everything. Well, there goes the shoe and stamp collections (my last two). Between that and digitizing all my records, photos and receipts, I’ll be wicked busy. I’ll catch up with you in a week and give you any tips I’ve accumulated.

Now that I have finished the hardest part, do you have any questions about my journey?And how are you doing with your own tiny house journey? Can I help in any way?
