Urban Threads is a new initiative to educate, connect and lead all ages to act in the creative reuse of waste materials within the new Weston Common Cultural Hub. Workshops, a sewing hub and design program using recycled and re-purposed materials will provide the mechanism for people to reduce waste, lessen their footprint on the environment, improve their economic and social well-being. Training and resources are aimed at creative reuse, employment and entrepreneurial development opportunities within the emerging green economy.
