This is your chance to learn how to make an essential household object - coat hooks - using timber from a reclaimed art shipping crate. You’ll be taught by the Re:Works cooperative team to make accurate measurements, markings and saw cuts. You’ll be working with circular design principles - including an interlocking form that minimises waste - and learn about how this innovative making co-op was formed. You’ll leave with your own unique creation, the satisfaction of making something useful and insight into fairer ways of making and living.
