Gumtree Double Decker Bus #upcyclerevolution

Gumtree Bus
Date: Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th September
Time: 10:00 - 17:00
Location: Festival Site

Gumtree  is on a mission to inspire the nation to waste less and, as a hub for buying old furniture and even selling upcycled goods, it has been leading the charge of the Upcycle Revolution. With the help of Max McMurdo and a team of savvy upcyclers, it has transformed an old double decker bus into an upcycling workshop, fully equipped with power tools and chalk paint.

You are invited to come on board the upcyling bus and learn how to breathe a new lease of life into old materials – showing how anyone can get involved in upcycling. It’s completely free and you get to keep your creation at the end of the session, just spread the word of the #upcyclerevolution.
