Reverse Garbage workshops are an opportunity to put the principles of sustainability – and specifically reuse - into practice through engaging, creative, interesting and enjoyable learning experiences.
All workshops offer experiences in sustainability and waste reduction through the reuse of materials and waste minimisation construction techniques (the majority of our workshops are tape and glue free!).
Participants are given an opportunity to develop important problem solving skills in art, design and construction and are encouraged to learn co-operatively through sharing their skills and discoveries with each other.
Reverse Garbage workshops teach valuable skills and techniques that are just as important as choosing reuse materials for a sustainable future.
