Outreach Workshops

Do you have a group that would love creating with us? Past partnerships include area libraries, schools, churches, summer camps, and community organizations. Book a workshop at our Greenwood location or let us come to you! We provide all the materials, two ReCreative staff members, and an abundance of inspiration.

Participants will use their imaginations and ingenuity while learning the value of recycling and the endless possibilities of creative reuse. The best news is they will do their part in keeping good stuff out of landfills.

We offer a variety of workshops for children, teens, and adults to support your organization or educational goals. We can tailor workshops to your needs and students’ ages or you may select one of the following popular workshops. Below, you will find a list of our most popular workshops, broken down by age group. Please note that we adapt workshops to be appropriate for each age group. (For instance, bookmaking for adults will be more advanced than bookmaking for 5-year olds.)
