Event description
This 'Make & Give' workshop with The Re-Creators gives you all the materials and know-how to get woodworking and craft a chopping board!

About this Event

Join us at Kelmarna Gardens for this skills-based upcycling workshop with The Re-Creators to craft your own chopping board using rescued and repurposed materials to create a unique, elegant, and indispensable addition to your kitchen or a thoughtful and conscientious gift this holiday season.This workshop includes the materials and instruction to repurpose wood offcuts as an artful appliance for chopping and serving up delicious goodies! The Re-Creators use discarded offcuts and/or deconstructed materials to guide you step-by-step through the process of designing, cutting, sanding, and polishing an upcycled chopping board fit for your kitchen bench.You will learn important woodworking skills such as identifying treated versus untreated wood, preparing a design, and processing the material with power tools. You will discuss sanding, sanders, how to use a jigsaw, and have the opportunity to give all of the tools a go!

Look forward to a lovely morning in the garden discovering the joy of making something useful and truly personal, all while helping our planet and pocket by reusing materials that already exist.

--The Re-Creators are on a mission to teach New Zealand how to upcycle, to reduce and reuse our resources, to share skills in reimagining 'waste' as creative opportunities! They swear that it's not only creative and sustainable, but also easy and fun too! They invite you to join them in skills-based workshops that empower our communities to make and give unique and beautiful gifts by upcycling rather than buying new.--

This workshop is proudly supported by the Creative Communities Scheme through the Arts Council of New Zealand, Toi Aotearoa.

Proceeds from this event support the Kelmarna Gardens Organic Community Farm, Workshops, and Youth Education Programme.
