Fortress Materials Drive
At this point we are funding Fortress out of pocket and trying to crowd-source as many of our materials as possible as the primary expenses of the project are in building it. We’ll be doing a materials drive throughout the month of October, accepting donations at Assemble. The drop-off times will be during our Fortress workshop hours, Sundays Oct 13th, 20th and 27th from 5:30 – 8:30 pm or during Saturday Crafternoons, Saturday Oct 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th from 1:00 – 4:00. You can also drop off anytime that the gallery is open for a public event. Find the calendar at www.assemblepgh.org/events
If you cant make any of those times but you have materials that you would like to donate we can come pick them up from you. Please sign up for this on the email list below.
Please note that materials that are donated will not be returned.
Here’s what we need!
Sheets/Fabric! – (oh my goodness, so many sheets) We will take any kind, any size, any color.
1 gallon Milk jugs – used and unwashed is fine (we’re making a milk jug igloo with a controllable light display)
Functional Christmas lights or light strands of any kind
Plastic/fabric/silk flowers and foliage
Pillows, blankets, rugs and pretty draperies – (we’ll be creating an Arabian/Moroccan/Bedouin lounge so anything that fits that decor theme and/or Persian type rugs)
Battery powered candles or batt opp leds of any kind
