Time to Reuse

Capture time and memories with these thoughtful and considered workshops that enable you to give a second life to materials.

As the experts in creative reuse since 1975, Reverse Garbage's mission is to inspire everyone to make reuse their first choice. These workshops will be held in our new reuse education spaces at our home of creativity here in Marrickville.

Timeless Textile Treasures with Mel Young
Give new life to old, treasured textiles by re-making them into new wearable objects.
