Do it yourself Denim Bar & Goodwill Pop-Up
Expand your fall wardrobe sustainably at a denim upcycling workshop. Goodwill of Greater Washington and Finding your Good are teaming up for a workshop at the Adams Morgan Community Center, where participants can bring their own denim or purchase from Goodwill to curate a new piece of clothing. Decorating materials are provided, and all proceeds from the event go toward the Goodwill Excel Center, a tuition free adult charter high school. The night also features a no-sew workshop with up-and-coming upcycling fashion designer Evan Ibrahim.
