About the class

Making it new again, bring something from your closet and create something new and exciting with the help of our experience up cycling teacher. We also have items you can use.

So what can we do? One way we can change it is through ‘upcycling’.  Upcycling is an art, the ‘process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value.’

Turn trash into treasure, register for our Up Cycling workshops, which will be held 1 day a week over a 6 week course . All sessions run for 2 hours. The course costs £60-  which includes materials and light refreshments.

12th March from 6 till 8:30pm
