Where Your Single Gift Benefit Many


ESCE Up-cycling Workshops are rewarding and exciting. We foremost offer our services to Assisted Living Communities, Retired Veterans, After-school Programs, Corporate & Small Business, Re-Entry Initiatives, Transitional & Recreational Centers

We are now expanding our services to include retired and wounded Veterans after recently learning of a similar initiative offering the 'crafting of masks' by these retired heroes.  We currently cover  Philadelphia, PA and surrounding areas. Sessions range from 1 to 8 hrs depending on the needs of the Entity.  Upcycling has become a unique & dignifying past time on a global scale.  Ours is a Recycling Concept that transforms items that would generally be discarded into delightful eye-catching crafts for safekeeping or donating to local charities

Items produced at these timely workshops are endless and original. Transforming Perishables to Crafts is foremost therapeutic and thought provoking as participants are encouraged to 'think outside the box' while formulating various avenues of turning something seemingly useless into a work of art. 98% of the items presented herein were destined to be discarded. With a little imagination, creativity & patience, you too can joined the multitudes uttering that collective chorus, namely...

"don't trash that"

Made from sodapop bottles, a shampoo container, scrap tulle, foil from potatoe chip bags, magazine paper & napkins

Specialty Workshops With New Product Development Appeal

Posted on June 5, 2016 at 5:10 PM Comments comments (0)

The Photographic Lineage Cremation Urn is a truly innovative wonder in today's mobile society where upwards of half the US population has turned to Cremation as the most cost-effective & dignified solution to finalizing the affairs of deceased loved ones past and present in a single Urn.

For generations now, surviving relatives of cremated ones have been longing for a way to honor their Heritage with a single unifying concept and where all surviving ones are afforded the opportunity to rejoice over the celebration of life and of their unity whenever one of their own falls prey to the great Enemy death!

Centuries of stockpiling Urn after Urn after Urn, and the emotional strain of parting with a single unit to share and appease other surviving siblings, are now burdens of the past as time and innovation has brought about a concept that bring loved ones back together again in this decorative, single unit, multi-compartment 'Lineage' Cremation Urn.

Variations of this Device stores the cremated remains of as few as three Beings while larger Units accommodate as many as eight, as in the Model shown here with the dimensions of 14 3/4"x 6 3/4"x 7" compartmentalized smoke-tinted {base} which is covered by a 15"x 7"x 5"{lid} that exposes a 2" viewing area of smoke filmed glass at the base when completely closed.

Handles are affixed to the sides of the lid for opening and closing. Finally, the carousel-like turnstile comprised of 4 dual-sided frames for inserting a total of 8 photos (back to back) sits atop the lid and rotates freely with the turning of a decorative knob at the lid's highest point, showcasing the lives, legacy & great unity of deceased Loved Ones. This is a specialty item handcrafted using the very concepts inculcated here in ESCE Organization's Up-cycling  Workshops. Hence, the final stages of development here. /esce

Why Not Simply Toss Perishables?

If you could turn items generally discarded into works of art that bring smiles to the faces of  friends, love ones or a certain charity, would it not be worth the effort to investigate this recycling concept? Notice how an empty freezer bag container shown below was transformed into a priceless handcrafted 'gem' that is not only pleasing to the eye, but innovative in design. 

Yes..., all handcrafted using items such as the empty freezer bag container, fashion magazine pages (like the Lancome' ad page), foil from potatoe chip bags, (Oprah, eat your heart out) tulle scraps, tissue packing paper and decorative press on crystals. Upcycling at its finest indeed. Our worshops inspire, dignify and bring out the creative Person.

If you are unable to take on our Workshops, why not consider boasting our cause through this timely Blog with your feed back.  Charitable Contributions are encouraged and appreciated as our restructuring to nonprofit takes form.  We hope that you have enjoyed the array of items produced through our upcycling workshops a unique recycling concept indeed.
