Upcycling Hub

New-U Upcycling Hub

New-U’s Upcycling Hub runs activities for the anyone interested in creating something new from old clothing in Norwich and Cromer.  These are free-of-charge
and we welcome everyone to come along, meet new people and learn new skills.  At these workshops, you will be able to make rugs, wreaths, canes, bunting, cushions, decorations and other craft items from pre-loved clothing.

Regular activities take place in our Honestly Library, level 2, Castle Quarter, Norwich on the second Tuesday of each month.  Please see our What’s
 page for individual workshop times and dates.

There is no need to pre-book, just pop in and join us. New-U will provide all the materials and tools needed.

Upcoming dates are:  (either 10am-12noon or 1pm-3pm)

  • Tue, May 14th – Rag Rugging: Learn how to transform old fabric into beautiful rugs
  • Tue, June 11th – Noticeboards: Create unique, functional boards for notes, photos, and more
  • Tues, July 9th – Snuffle Mats: Make a sensory mat for your pets while exploring your creativity

Our activities are for all skill levels, from experienced crafters to complete beginners. Each month, we focus on a different upcycling activity. 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. 

Please email hello@new-ultd.co.uk if
you have any questions or would like more information.
