Our workshops show kindergarten students how to give waste materials a new life through creative reuse. Our workshops are tape-and-glue free, using low-waste construction techniques like lacing and threading.

We’re currently running two regular workshops for Early Stage 1 students: Pushmi-Pullyu and Look At Me. Customised workshops are available on request.

Reverse Garbage workshops take students through a design process, aligned with NSW Syllabus outcomes, to facilitate creative thinking and collaboration.

PUSHMI-PULLYU

Make: Build a toy that moves – and learn how to get things running without batteries! Kids experiment with push/pull forces and use materials they would find in their own home to make their own battery-free push-toy. Children use low-waste construction techniques as they develop an understanding of how things move.
