Use creative techniques to turn your household waste into new things!

About this Event

 ReThink, ReMake, ReCycle

A series of 2 sustainability-focused workshops at KWMC The Factory this April in which you can:

  • Discover the impact of common household waste materials
  • Find out how much you waste and what you can do to reduce this
  • Explore how to make DIY alternatives

These free workshops are suitable for ages 7+  but under 16s must be supervised by an adult.

 ReThink, ReMake, ReCycle: Paper (Tuesday 7 April, 10am – 2pm )

Paper towels and tissues are usually made from recycled paper, which can't be recycled again. Learn how to design and make your own reusable fabric alternatives. No sewing skills required!

In collaboration with ethical designer/maker Lisa Cole

 ReThink, ReMake, ReCycle: Plastics  (Tuesday 14 April, 10am – 2pm )

Single use plastic and its impact on the environment is a rapidly growing issue, with exported recycling waste being turned away and floating islands of plastic rubbish developing in our oceans.

Discover how to turn single-use plastic into new materials and create new ‘bioplastics’ using household food waste.
