Shelf Life

25th January

We have received some extra funding as part of a National project called Shelf Life. Libraries across Scotland will be encouraging people to join the climate-change debate with funding from SLIC and here in East Ren we have some great activities to encourage people to get involved, learn, chat, discuss and create.

We are delighted to have Eilidh Weir along to deliver Visible Mending Workshops at several libraries. Eilidh is a textiles artist and visible mending enthusiast and will be showing us techniques for repairing/ upgrading clothes and keeping them out of landfill. Workshops are free and details are below. Spaces are limited so hurry! Check out further posts with details of other activities we have organised for children.
