Launch RepairLab Workshop Series

 

EMPOWERING THE COMMUNITY TO REDUCE, REUSE AND RECYCLE

The NightQuarter RepairLab has a mission to empower the community to participate in the circular economy. The space provides opportunities for the community to meet with skilled local makers, artisans and craftspeople to repair and reuse furniture, clothes, jewellery, bicycles and more.

Join our regular workshops on how to make art out of plastics, gardening, composting, recycling electronics, repurposing jewellery and glass.  

We proudly collaborate with Living Smart, an environmental sustainability program run by the Sunshine Coast Council’s Sustainability Team.

Gretchen works across various media and has a background in biology and loves to educate, challenge and delight her audiences.
