Event Details

Cancelled: “Swap-O-Rama-Rama” DIY Workshop & Clothing Swap | Oakland

Please note, Swap-O-Rama-Rama is no longer taking place.

Swap-O-Rama-Rama is a nonprofit community clothing swap with a do-it-yourself workshop in which attendees explore the process of reuse and collective creativity together.

Every third Saturday of the month (except for May when they’re at the Maker Faire), they host a meetup where they encourage beginners to experts alike to come, bring clothes and ideas, and swap it like it’s hot. Share and learn ideas of how to repurpose anything and everything into clothing, home decor, and beyond.

Let’s get together to socialize while you swap clothes and ideas. This month’s theme will be Refashioned Cardigans. Start with an ugly sweater or sweatshirt and make it look awesome. 

Bring your unwanted, clean clothing to swap with others, and we’ll have a featured clothing upcycling project ready for you to turn loose your own creativity. We’ll supply sewing machines and all the tools you need.

No shoes unless brand new! They have had too many leftover in recent months.

Bring clothes to swap, any supplies you’d like for the DIY project, and a friend. Donations are always welcomed to help keep the lights on. And finger foods and beverages to share are encouraged.

Disclaimer: Please double check event information with the event organizer as events can be canceled, details can change after they are added to our calendar, and errors do occur.
