Festivals, Team Events & Parties


Hire us to bring your event to life with a workshop, play, artwork or whatever you need.

Festival workshops

Throughout the year, Reverse Garbage present Creative Reuse workshops at community events and festivals around Sydney and regional New South Wales. We can create a workshop tailored to your theme.

RG Children’s Parties

Invite us to your birthday party and we’ll run an activity suitable for your theme and your guests’ age group .

We’ll bring our giant loose parts play kit or our reuse resources so guests can make their

own party hats and decorations, create their own unique piece of  junk jewellery, tinker with tools, design a spaceship… or so much more.

We can come to you, or bring the party here to our makerspace where you can have all of the fun with none of the waste—or the clean up!

…a big thank you… The education that Fiona & Sarah provides was amazing , engaging & so very important. All of my local Wagga friends were very impressed by Reverse Garbage being at our festival. I believe it has helped change people’s ideas about what to do with the waste we as a community are creating.
