REVERSE GARBAGE SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER SCHOOL HOLIDAY WORKSHOPS
Looking for engaging, creative, interesting and fun activities these school holidays?
Join the team of Reverse Garbage artists and educators in our series of creative reuse workshops!
Reverse Garbage workshops are an opportunity to put the principles of sustainability – and specifically reuse - into practice through fun and creative projects.
All of our workshops aim to teach about 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 visual art and design 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.
Workshops will be held on site at
Addison Road Community Centre, 142 Addison Road, Marrickville.
Workshops are for children aged 4 – 15 years.
Children 8 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
Workshops are $10 per child and include a $10 gift voucher to spend in-store, payment must be made when making the booking.
Places are limited, so book today! Bookings can be made by phoning: 9569 3132
We look forward to seeing you soon!
