What's On

Join us at one of our events from pop-up sales to upcycling workshops. See below for details.

Creative Upcycling Hub - Second Tuesday Each Month!

Embrace your creative side and make a positive impact on the environment by joining in our monthly upcycling activity! Each month we’ll be experimenting with different upcycling activities and offer you the chance to connect with a vibrant community, learn new skills, and help reduce textile waste.

When & Where:
• Every Second Tuesday of the Month. 
• 10.30am – 3.00pm – No need to book, just pop in!
• Honesty Library, Level 2, Castle Quarter, Norwich. You’ll find us at the top of the spiral staircase near Boots, just two doors down from our clothing swap shop.

Upcoming dates are

Tue 9th July, 10:30am – 3pm 
Tue 6th Aug, 10:30am – 3pm 
Tue 10 Sept,  10:30am – 3pm  
Drop by any time, or come every month—it’s up to you!

Our activities are for all skill levels, from experienced crafters to complete beginners.  You can bring along your own upcycling craft project to work on, learn how to rag rug with us or bring clothing along for repair advise from one of our volunteers (afternoons only). Come once or every month—it’s up to you! 

These activities are free.  However New-U is a charity so if an activity requires supplies that we have to buy, occasionally we may ask for a small contribution to cover specific costs. 

For more information and updates please see our Facebook event page or follow us on Instagram
