Creativity on a Shoestring  

Welcome to the bonkers world of creative reuse. Hop out into your garden, dive up into your attic, rummage in your drawers, and go fish in your bin. Look high and low for inspiration. Get curious about the possibilities all around you. Make the unloved lovable. Find beauty in waste. This workshop is for young budding curious explorers. With ReCreate Ireland, we’ll show you how your family can to do ‘creativity on a shoestring’.
