The UP-Cycle Shop wants to make positivity profitable. Santa used elves to help build toys and the UP-Cycle Shop needs helpers to create unique art pieces, using recycled materials. I’m going to share with you some basic UP-Cycling ideas on how to make a variety of wooden craft items. The UP-Cycle Shop and needs some help to make: Boxes and planters Signs and plaques Small craft items like mini Christmas tress and recycled snow globes If you would like to try something new, build, paint, stencil, glue and just create, this is the session for you. The UP-Shop acts as a fund generating store that sells positive products to generate funds for youth and community projects. On the 10 December we have craft stall at Dudley Christmas market, this is where we will sell some of the products made during the trade school session.

Bring one of the following:
A random item from that random draw in your house where you just randomly throw things in every now and again…. My mom calls it the useful draw.
An offer to teach a trade school class
Dust masks, you can never have enough dust masks
Inspiration, I am a man on a mission to inspire the world, if you can bring me something that will inspire me, that could be the best barter item I could ever wish for. Quotes, painting, poems, it’s all good.
Sand paper, working with wood = a lot of sanding, I know that people always have a random sheet here or there in the house from their old DIY projects, why not put it to a good use.
Screws, bolts, nails, old hinges and size and style, they always come in handy when your making random things
