Summer School Holiday Eco-Art Workshops

Reverse Garbage encourages kids to get creative with waste over the summer holidays!

The Reverse Garbage school holiday eco-art workshop program introduces children to a world of colourful, interesting and unusual materials that were once destined for landfill. Designed for 6 to 12 year olds, these themed workshops encourage children to create works of art using waste!

Toys R.R.R. Us is a special post-Christmas workshop as this one encourages children to bring in one of their discarded toys, which they are sure to have after Christmas and turn it into a new one!

Other themes include: Zany Zoo, Cute and Crazy Costume Parade, Funky Bags, Eco Robots and Inventions, Garden Galore and more!
