Week-by-week, we explore new ways of recycling and reusing materials that have been damaged or discarded. We provide a creative workshop space where the participants are given the opportunity to brainstorm how to use waste products to turn them into a material that can be used to create something new.

In partnership with the NGO, Etafeni Early childcare development centre in Nyanga, Cape Town & with support from UnLtd South Africa, 8 young women from Zonnebloem Nest High School were selected to participate in a 12 week creative design workshop where they will explore ways of reusing waste products to turn them into material that can be used to create a new garment or product.
While Etafeni’s focus is early child care development, they also run an income generation programme for adults who are significant in the lives of the children who are cared for at the centre. The caregivers who participate in the income generation programme are trained in beadwork, smocking, patchwork and embroidery. 4 of the caregivers will participate in the programme & share their skills with the younger women.
