Event description
This 'Make & Give' workshop with The Re-Creators gives you the materials & know-how you need to craft wooden planter boxes for your garden!

About this Event

Join us at Kelmarna Gardens for this skills-based upcycling workshop with The Re-Creators to craft your own garden planter boxes using rescued and repurposed materials to create a useful addition to your greenspace or a thoughtful and conscientious gift this holiday season.

This workshop includes the materials and instruction to revitalise wood offcuts into useful planter boxes for your herbs, flowers, or other darling seedlings! The Re-Creators use discarded offcuts and/or deconstructed materials, including mistint paint, to guide you step-by-step through the process of making an upcycled planter box fit for the garden.

You will learn important woodworking skills such as identifying treated versus untreated wood, building from a design plan, and assembling all of the pieces 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 Waitematā Local Board, Auckland Council.

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