Making Space were thrilled to deliver the Make New & Mend project in 2022/23.
Funded by Hampshire County Council’s Waste Prevention Fund, the project prevented household waste through a series of ‘make new and mend’ inspired workshops.
The sessions taught participants inventive and clever ways to repurpose, upcycle and mend household items to prevent them from going to waste. Those attending learnt new creative skills and gained knowledge and confidence. Rather than a ‘repair cafe’ format, we taught the techniques so participants could do it themselves and pass those skills on!
To ensure these skills continue to be shared with our community and to prevent more household waste going forward, we are sharing resouces from our tutors on all the sessions. Just click on the links below to download free hints, tips, ideas and resources. (More coming soon)
A huge thank you to Hampshire County Council for funding this project and enabling us to subsidise this project!
