Our workshops are a fun and engaging activity for kids in vacation care. Delivered by creative reuse experts, they are designed to cater to the interests and skills of a range of age groups.

Our skilled team of educators will get the kids working with materials from our vast array of industrial discards and quirky leftovers. The kids will get the chance to design and make something to take home with them, as well as being encouraged to think about sustainability and the value of creative reuse.

CREATOR CLUB

Welcome to the Creator Club where children are only limited by their imaginations. In this workshop Reverse Garbage facilitators will teach children how to reuse all sorts of unusual recycled items. Reverse Garbage workshops are tape-and-glue free, so children will learn other attachment techniques and be supported to use their ingenuity to create a final product. This is an open-ended, creative workshop, so children are free to use their imagination and create whatever they want to out of the materials provided.

SUPER HEROES

Join Reverse Garbage for a super-sustainable workshop making superhero costumes! Children will be able to use a variety of unusual reuse and recycled materials to create their own mask, cape, and superpower pack with a logo. Facilitators will introduce children to an array of colourful materials and will encourage them to get creative, use their imaginations and come up with something to show off in a short parade at the end of the workshop.

CARDBOARD CHALLENGE

Children are challenged to be as creative and imaginative as they can with cardboard, masking tape, textas and stickers. This is an open-ended workshop so there is no prescribed outcome – whatever children can imagine, we can help them to create! The workshop is designed to encourage lateral thinking and imagination as well as to introduce children to the possibilities of recycled and reuse objects.

DIY GAMES

Remember all the classic games you used to play when you were a child? In this workshop, children will be able to create their very own games out of reuse and recycled materials. Be prepared to see water bottle skittles, marble runs, board games made with cardboard and bottle tops – and much more. This session is creative and crazy and introduces children to the wild possibilities of recycled and reuse objects. All children go home with a DIY game that should give them long-lasting use and enjoyment.
