Our Upcycling Workshops are one of the main features of the
One Planet Forth Valley Project

We run regular Furniture, Fabric and Sewing Workshops in our CSREC office at the Howgate Shopping Centre in Falkirk! Throughout this project we have made beautiful and useful items out of furniture, old clothes and scrap fabrics that were meant to go to waste! After the session, we weigh the finished products and calculate our carbon savings for the day. All of our workshops are free for anyone, whether you are a beginner or someone who wants to keep learning new upcycling projects.

We are open to all ages and communities. We are a team of three upcyclers, open to running bespoke workshops for other organisations. All materials are provided too!

Check out our Events and Workshop page and find out what workshops we have on!

Old furniture is revamped. We run furniture upcycling workshops regularly!

Items that would have gone to the bin are turned into amazing decorations!

Along the way, we have met so many enthusiastic people from all ages and backgrounds!

Upcycling is a great way to express your creativity and resourcefulness! Anything can be made from anything, as long as you have great ideas on how to reuse things that would have otherwise gone to the bin 🙂
