Make-A-Thon

At the School of Uganglish Make-A-Thon you will get to immerse yourself in a night of UpCycling.  Free your imagination to make & create amazing textile gifts with an AfroRetro™ flavour from household waste, unloved clothing and our collection of African Fabric remnants.

Turn food tins into colourful fabric storage containers, Upcycle an unloved T-Shirt into a cool duffle bag, turn up the heat to UpCycle old plastic bags into funky zip purses plus much much more!

At the AfroRetro™ Make-A-Thon you get quality and quantity! Create 4 different UpCycled makes over the evening and as much tea as you can drink! If you want to carry on making then you can buy vouchers for additional make-a-thon challenges.
