Workshops you can book for your group

It is great to learn new skills and even better to do it in a friendly lively group. The Great Waste Re:Workshops are designed to get people making and repairing things from potentially wasted resources, learning new skills and having fun.


There are four types of workshops

  1. Skills– Knitting, Sewing, Weaving, Jewellery making and much more

  2. Repairs – for example electrical, bikes, clothing and shoes etc

  3. Upcycling – for example making benches from pallets, light shades from bottles, paper making

  4. Waste challenges – brilliant workshops full of learning, making and competitions.


Here is a menu of workshops to choose from. Send us an enquiry via the contact form about the workshop topics you are interested in and we will ring back to discuss your requirements. 


We are happy to run workshops for adults and children and sometime a mix of both!


Note: Some workshops are free although donations toward volunteers travel expenses are welcome. Other workshops requiring a skilled trainer involve a charge per person and sometimes require a minimum group size.
