Community Workshops

Community  Workshops

Every Tuesday  2pm til 7pm      from 12th September

We'll get back to you soon!



The Upcycle Kernow workshop opens it’s doors for an “anything goes” skills sharing session offering a safe, fun environment, to give participants the

freedom to work on their own upcycling projects, from textiles projects,

van conversions, jewellery making and beadwork, to wood carving  or shelf building!  With access to our well stocked Tool Library  you can be sure there's something here for everyone!  Our inclusive, well-equipped workspace gives makers the opportunity to share skills and ideas, allowing them to motivate and inspire each other as they work on their own projects.


Our Scraperdashery is full of mixed media materials -from textiles, curtain tape & threads, to wood, screws and nails to beads, jewellery findings and other upcycling treasures for sale at ridiculously reduced prices, ensures our MakerSpace is an amazing opportunity for those wishing to develop their own projects, but don’t have the space, inspiration or equipment at home. 

These groups are not project-led, however, staff will be available to support you in your work, ensuring you get the best out of your session.

express yourself through the medium of wood!

nurture your mental wellbeing, and maybe make a gift or two

for friends and relatives - if you can bear to part with your sculptures!
