Students showcase ReMade products designed for your garden

Western industrial design students introduced their “upcycled” yard and garden products at the opening reception of the annual ReMade exhibition at Ideal on Friday, Nov. 6.

As a part of class project called ReMade, students proposed their own ideas of reusing post-consumer waste and turned them into products related to the main theme of this year’s project, yard and garden.

After the designing products and producing a limited edition of 20 each, they actually started selling their handmade products through Ideal, a store in the downtown Bellingham, from Nov. 6 through Nov. 21, or until all the products sold out, according to Ideal’s website.

The store was full of people on the opening reception day, who then got the opportunity to talk with the creators of products.

Dolores Kuiper, one of visitors from the Bellingham community, was impressed with the project as a whole and the unique products students created.

“All of the products are actually usable and interesting,” Kuiper said.

The store, Ideal, opens Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
