Wouldn’t it be great if we could redesign items we normally throw away to create new and useful ones? These sessions are for everyone that wants to tune into their own creative potential by recycling and transforming waste and old items into something new! Bring along some old fabric or clothes or some snacks for the session to keep everyone full of food and full of ideas!
