3D Printing for Design & Repair 

Captain Picard walks slowly to the black box in the corner of his room. The command “Tea, Earl Grey, Hot” is all that is necessary for the machine to rapidly replicate his order.

These wondrous machines are no longer confined to science fiction, they are very much real today. With real world applications in science and technology, there has never been a better time to start learning.

Join us for a demonstration and introduction into the exciting new world of 3D printing as we discuss the machinery and software you need to get started.

Repurpose, Reuse, Rediscover! Upcycling Your Wardrobe

Ready to give some of your tired old clothing a second life. Come along to this workshop to find out how to put some new pizazz into your wardrobe (or home decor).

This workshop will offer ideas for revitalizing or repurposing clothing & textiles - it's all about wasting less and making more!

If you have an item of clothing you just love the colour of, but the style just doesn't give you that warm fuzzy feeling, then bring it along and we'll explore ideas on how to upcycle it into a something fun, funky and fashionable.

Love Your Tools 

Join Scott from Werribee Park Heritage Orchard to learn how to maintain and sharpen your garden tools. Keeping your pruning and garden tools sharp and well maintained is good for the health of your plants and makes gardening more enjoyable. It also extends the life of your tools and keeps stuff out of landfill.

Learn how to sharpen secateurs, loppers, general pruning and grafting tools and your trusty shovel, as well as how to replace a timber handle. Bring a pair of secateurs with you on the day. Each participant will take home a sharpening stone at the end of the session.
