A little bit about Upcycle Kernow...


Combining artistic practices with traditional skills, we create fun, safe environments to help you explore and develop your own sustainable journey. From Upcycling Workshops, Repair Cafes, Community Swishes, Resources Outlet and recycling points, our community has created a local circular economy that supports and benefits all aspects of an inspiring, sustainable lifestyle.


In our Upcycling Workshops, you can take part in a variety of creative projects from using power tools with reclaimed timber, or sewing machines to create textile art and transform clothes, or soldering for glass sculpture and jewellery making. These are the ideal place to use noise equipment, get wild with creativity, or to be calm, quiet and concentrate, whilst turning trash into treasure.
