Upcycling & Sustainable Living Classes

What is it?

 

Our Upcycling and Sustainable Living classes provide a broad range of skills and knowledge that empower you to confidently upcycle and make sustainable eco products.  These practical hands on and online classes are also delivered for other organisations, businesses, institutions, public bodies and groups. 

Some examples are DIY Natural Body & Home Care, Botanical Eco Printing, Furniture Repair & Painting and  MYO Beeswax Wraps. 

Please get in touch for a full list of classes.

 

How can it help the environment?

 

By providing knowledge on how to make your own sustainable alternative products we can reduce energy use, lower our carbon footprint and lower the demand on finite natural resources.

You can learn to make laundry detergent, produce bags, toothpaste, beeswax wraps, lotions and much more.
