Reverse Garbage

Reconsidered Reuse Craft Workshops

Experiment and have fun with this all-ages kids (over 8s) and adults workshop which will focus on upcycling paper craft with old books, paper and wallpaper, as well as fabric scraps.

Create useful and decorative items from re-use objects all provided by Reverse Garbage that would have otherwise ended up in landfill.

Families that craft together, stay together.

Fabric Craft, Saturday 14 October, 10am - 12pm. Learn hand-stitching and fabric embellishment techniques to reinvent fashion items from your wardrobe or create accessories from fabric remnants.
