Interested in learning how to repair, reuse, and upcycle stuff? Join us for this year’s Repair & Upcycle Series co-hosted by the City, Bike Library, Green Iowa AmeriCorps, and our Parks and Recreation Department.

Event topics will include:

  • Rag Rug Making
  • Bike Repair
  • Wine Cork Upcycling
  • Clothing Mending
  • Kitchenware Repairs
  • And, more!

These events run from Feb. 3, to March 24, 2022. Some events will be held virtually, while some will take place in person.

In-person event requirements:

  • Registration is required for most events, due to limited space. 
  • Masks are required to be worn over the nose and mouth.

As these events are hosted by a variety of partners, check individual event details for date, time, location, cost (most events are free, but a few have a fee) at
