Creative Upcycling Workshops
Upcycling: the process of reusing and converting old or discarded materials and objects to create a useful product of a higher quality, which are often quite beautiful.
Our Creative Upcycle Workshops will provide participants with unique DIY ideas for home, garden and gifts while helping to reuse, recycle, repair, redesign and refinish items which are old, outdated or discarded. Whether you’re an upcycling pro or a beginner, join us and learn new skills, and have fun while doing it!
