Join the ‘Recreate Revolution’ in a hands on 90 minute creative workshop for teachers, youth workers, child care providers, craft groups, artists and anyone who would like to up-skill in the creative arts. Promoting ‘Make Art not Waste’ explores the endless possibilities of creative reuse using items from ReCreates’ ‘Warehouse of Wonders’ such as wool, paper, plastics, fabric, tubing and foam. Experiment with printing, weaving and much more in this artist led workshop. Ideas and chat will spark your imagination and you will have the opportunity to make something completely unique to bring home.
ReCreate is a not for profit membership organisation. End of line and surplus materials are collected from businesses and then sorted and displayed at their storehouse. These materials can be accessed and used by members as many times as necessary throughout the year for an annual membership fee. They supply these materials as arts and crafts materials and educational play resources for creative groups working with young children, the active retired and others. They also cater for artists, art teachers, creative facilitators and anyone interested in creative expression.
ReCreate collects materials from over 100 suppliers and offers them to over 850 members. They promote the reuse of materials through creativity, while reducing the annual spend on art materials for their members.
