Holiday Crafts Demonstration - 19th September 2-3pm

The next Meetup event at Reverse Garbage Queensland is all about crafting with kids during the school holidays

In this free demonstration, our Shop Floor Co-ordinator Louise will show our weird and wonderful materials in action. She'll focus on fun and easy crafts that can be enjoyed by both adults and kids using RGQ materials and a bit of imagination and being just in time for the school holidays, should mean an end to the dreaded “I'm bored”.
