Calling all environmentally conscious 6 -12 year olds. Would you like to make a Christmas Snow Globe, Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer Puppet, Christmas Carol Instrument or maybe a Funky Bag? Reverse Garbage will host 16 sustainable art workshops during the summer school holidays.

Children (and adults) will love walking into the massive warehouse which is Reverse Garbage - chock full of salvaged treasures from second hand books to hessian sacks to wedding dress lace. The $20 Eco Art Workshops include materials and tuition. Each workshop takes place within the warehouse, runs for 1.5 hours, and participants actually learn about the recycling process as they create their art works. They have lots of fun too.
