This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

The studio's mission is to encourage & assist rethinking throwing away old/broken/unloved items by renewing them in one of the following ways where possible/practical/desirable: - REPAIR/make good - REUSE in another way by UPCYCLING into a different object - REDISTRIBUTE if not wanted to others or could use it, so RECYCLING Summary Mission = RETHINK WASTE

What we'll deliver:

  • Skills to repair/make good or upcycle
  • A space to make this happen
  • Positive message to encourage the community to rethink waste

Why it's a great idea:

We need to reduce waste & rethink our throw-away culture because tomorrow's future is today's making. By developing local community initiatives to support this we can work together to bring about a major change in how society thinks about waste.

Steps to get it done:

  • Launch the Rethink Studio concept via an open day & inviting local press, schools & politicians

For the model to thrive we would need to ask for nominal voluntary donations for those using the service to continue to fund materials & operating costs.
