Upcycle Workshops - 3rd Thursday of each month - not in August
6:30pm - 9:30pm We meet the third Thursday of every month. Informal & friendly drop in sessions. We try to reuse or repurpose old things: we help each other fix things, adapt clothing, share our skills and expertise to create something new from something old. We have sewing machines and tea! Occasionally we have demonstrations from guests for example upcycling furniture, homemade jewellery...Everyone welcome. Chat over tea, bring a project or start one here.
