In order to ensure maximum recycling potential the Charity further minimizes the amount of non-recyclable items taken to landfill by promoting the use of free upcycling workshops.
The workshops are volunteer led and users are encouraged to share and learn new transferable skills with other like-minded members of the community. Details & dates of further workshops will be posted on our website...
iUpcycle is a spin-off from the growing success of Free Upcycling Workshops EN8 (FUW), funded by the National Lottery on 17 March 2018.
This user-led project encourages members of our local community to be proactive and introduce positive changes into their everyday lives through learning new transferable skills from their peers.
The overriding principal is to regenerate communities affected by poverty and wealth disparity. Users are able to sell their creations and keep 100% of the profit!
📣Our #Local #Upcycling #Project encourages members of the local community to come together and share their skills, knowledge and experience with each other.
