Upcycling Advice


10 per visit Virtual OK

Resourcefulness is a virtue that heals the planet and the wallet! Most of what we buy in the store could be made from the things we throw away (for free or seriously cheap.) If you want advice or insight into converting your cardboard boxes, plastic bags, candle holders, broken headphones and dilapidated ponytail holders into furniture, jewelry, clothes and more than why not reach out for some upcycling advice!

I'll give you a consultation where we'll discuss the products you want to create, typically throw away, or need some creative insight to complete. We'll go over any allergies, sensitivities, scale, space, or other needs and restrictions and address the best ways to work with them. Depending on your needs we can meet regularly to develop and create new projects or after the consultation I can provide you with written guidelines and help points that will enable you to hit the ground running on your own.

Training & Qualifications

I am an avid upcycler and systems thinker who compulsively converts at home waste into usable items. Environmentalism is in my bones and has fueled much art and teaching work.

I've worked with groups like the Urban Pond Procession, City Arts Providence and pop up project Urban Coastal Dance as a teaching artist and choreographer integrating environmental awareness into arts education and performance.

I've also done lots of activism work with groups like Greenpeace, Clean Water Action, and Forests Forever as a face to face fundraiser and as a volunteer.

I am collaborating as a designer on a line of purses and skirts made from recycled materials that will launch in LA sometime in 2020 or 2021

About Z Silver

Working and learning in the fitness, entertainment, theatre, and non-profits worlds has been my avenue to heal bodies, protect the environment, express myself, and understand the world. Through wisdom... building experiences both excruciating and joyful, there is no question in my mind that lasting change comes from healing ourselves and our societies. Desiring to bridge the nuanced and fascinating exercise science of my elite ballet training with body positive empowerment and practical solutions for non-dancers and dancers alike; I obtained a NASM personal training certification in 2014. Along with client work, I have the privilege to work with seniors as an instructor with California Tai Chi. I have also been able to work with children, adults, and dancers with Youniquely Fit LLC, NYC Fit4Life, Equinox, and while developing my own class during my work with NYC's Power Studios. Committed to being a voice for change; I have worked with organizations including Greenpeace, Vocal NY, Forests Forever, and the ACLU in grassroots activist roles in the fight for a just and sustainable future. I have also been part of environment justice oriented art and teaching projects including the Urban Pond Procession and Aquatic Parallels. As a performer I work in music, dance, and fashion mediums. I have performed on stages including The Yerba Buena Center, the Skirball Center, DROM, and Ruby Skye. I've exhibited work in NYC and Los Angeles, and I've worked in film, commercial, and music video projects recently appearing in a Nipsey Hussle documentary and a campaign for Murad. As I continue to evolve as a teacher, artist, and healer I strive to create and be part of solutions that can get more and more people back into a state of balance and connectedness so our global ecosystem and human race can exist sustainably and more
