Social Responsibility and Sustainability

Salon: No Time to Waste

Don’t know what your old possessions are made of? Hate filling your bin on moving out day? Then why not join us for this hands-on workshop, and find out how to repurpose all that personal ‘junk’ waiting to be thrown out!


In this facilitated workshop, we will be providing participants with various items which are frequently abandoned to the landfill stream by their owners. Participants will be invited to take apart these items, using the provided tools, and propose alternative uses for their components, in an effort to upcycle waste.

We will also be hearing about creative repurposing from design experts, as well as waste management at the University of Edinburgh and the circular economy.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
