We get out and about a lot! You’ll find our fun Creative Reuse workshops at community events and festivals, and shopping centres during the holidays. 

School holiday workshops – April 2019

Every 2.5 hour workshop encourages children to open their mind to the possibilities of what can be created from reuse resources, ie. items that are often thrown away without a second thought. They will come home with a masterpiece to show and a new understanding of how they can make a difference to their world every single day.

Children will get to use our reuse resources to design and make their own giant buttons, badges, bag tags and whatever else they come up with!

Tinkering with tools

$25 per child

Armed with some basic tools and a little know-how, the children will be encouraged to pull things apart to see what’s inside.

We’ll explore what makes it work, how and why pieces connect to each other, and discuss what could be rescued for reuse before it is thrown to landfill.

NEW!  School term workshops

9.30 – 11.30am
8 weeks of workshops starting Saturday, 4 May 2019
Book now

Finally, a children’s workshop where everything that comes home is USEFUL.

This two-hour weekly workshop will help children REthink items before throwing away – as there is no such thing as ‘away’.

Learning how to breathe new life into everyday objects gives children a new perspective on waste which will serve them and our planet well into the future. Simple items such as cardboard tubes, cereal boxes, advertising magnets, clothes, and more will be transformed into desk useful items that can live on in the backyard, kitchen or study, out shopping or dining.
