Upcycling, also known as creative reuse, is the process of turning waste materials and old, used or unwanted products into new materials or items of better use or quality – creative upcycling!
MIDWASTE is running Creative Upcycling workshops to teach you how to get creative with old stuff and turn them into something useful and beautiful.
Creative Upcycling workshops include sculpture and other art based activities.
