January, 2019, at the Broomhill Art Flat

We kicked off 2019 with a bang of new classes, more classes and returning classes!


Our Furniture Upcycling workshop multiplied due to popularity, so there’s now two classes – one on a Monday and the other on a Tuesday. Participants are busy making and upcycling beautiful pieces already!

Broomy’s Bairns is also back! This time with a focus on environmental education and teaching the kids about recycling and the importance of it.


We braved the cold and took the kids out to the Broomy’s Bees Garden to see their hard work and beautiful art finally in place!  Then asked them to choose some of their favourite shapes from the garden, to sketch them out on a piece of paper then we headed back inside to copy those shapes to make repeat patterns.  On donated fabrics we painted out our chosen shapes, which are then going to be used to make bunting for the kids to take home.


In January, Textile Upcycling came back with a focus on denim! We’ve had some brilliant pieces upcycled, including a pair of jeans made into a tool-belt, a patchwork apron and some inventive coasters!

All three of these workshops are part of the Recycle Upcycle 3D project, that is funded by Climate Challenge Fund, Greener Scotland and European Regional Development Fund and so were completely FREE.

These workshops runs on a first-come-first-served basis, so please contact RIG Arts on 01475 649359, email info@rigarts.org, or send us a message on Facebook, to secure your place or for more details.
