Children’s Scrapstore presents Bristol’s Community Reuse Festival
Weekend of September 28-29th 2019, 11am-4pm

Reuse, arts and creative play unite for a two day programme that celebrates Bristol’s exciting and innovative reuse culture. Curated by Children’s Scrapstore, the festival line-up includes workshops, live artists, talks, and creative play; recline in the SOFA Project lounge area, restore your bike with Bristol Bike Project’s Dr Bikes, delve into the Scrapstore Clothes Swap, or explore the many and varied opportunities to play, create and connect with your own potential for reuse in your family or household.

We’ll be having The ReUsery with us on Saturday, running a drop in session from 11am to 1pm where you can learn to create discloth scrubbies out of socks, and eco-friendly bin liners from newspaper - no booking is necessary for this session.

In the afternoon from 1.30pm to 2.30pm, you can get involved with designing and printing your own reusable tote bag, and then from 3pm til 4pm you can make a colourful array of pompoms to decorate any clothes, accessories or homeware that needs a new lease of life. Book into both of these sessions through the link below.

You’ll find the Community Reuse Festival at Scrapstore House, our charity’s home in Sevier Street, St Werburghs – you could coordinate your visit as part of St Werburghs Arts Trail, drop in, or stay all day…

The festival is free to attend and welcomes children and adults, individuals and families – come along and join the momentum of Bristol’s growing reuse community!
