Re-claimed material building workshops

Over the next four weeks we will be running daily open workshops on the car park at the Cre8 Centre in Hackney Wick. We will be building an extension to the Wick on Wheels (WOW) milk float using recycled and reclaimed materials. Please join us and get hands on involved, learn how to work with recycled materials or simply drop in for a chat. No previous building experience is needed.

We are on site Wednesdays to Saturdays from 12 noon until 5pm

The daily workshops will be focused on a number of tasks. We will be building roof panels from recycled beer cans, set up a workspace using reclaimed timber from the Olympic site, build a planter using old bath tubs and more. All from our mobile workshop at the back of the milk float.

Over the coming four weeks we will also be running more focused building workshops on Saturdays that explore specific aspects of working with reclaimed materials. Everyone attending the workshop will have the opportunity to engage in the different processes of making during the course of the day and contribute to the experimentation and design development.

Also drop in to learn about the Cre8 Arc project and community garden which is taking shape at the back of the Cre8 centre.

Saturday workshops run from 12 - 4pm see the events section for more details
