Trash to Treasures

Guild Hall’s Teen Arts Council has organized a cleanup at Atlantic Avenue Beach in Amagansett on Saturday and will follow up with a fashion event using repurposed finds on Sunday. The cleanup will begin at 10 a.m. Gloves, buckets, water, and snacks will be provided. 

Sunday’s free Recover, Repurpose, Recycle event at the museum from noon to 4 p.m. will incorporate materials found during the beach cleanup as well as clothing collected during a swap at Guild Hall earlier this month. Workshops on the schedule include denim painting, tote bag design, pin and patch making, and embroidery. Snacks and beverages will be served.

On Saturday, “Mary Poppins Returns” will be shown at 1 p.m. It stars Lin-Manuel Miranda and Emily Blunt, as the Banks family’s favorite nanny, back to help the now-grown children after a family tragedy.
