Keen to learn how to update a tired looking piece of furniture? Thinking of throwing away a household item you no longer use? Then come along to our Repair, Reuse and Upcycle event in Camden and learn the tricks of the trade for turning tired tables into trendy talking points!
Repairing, reusing and upcycling what we already have can create beautiful, unique pieces of furniture and furnishings. A simple change can make a huge difference: by reducing waste, saving money and helping the environment.
