TradeSchool Cardiff 'Reduce Reuse Recycle'

Join us for TradeSchool Cardiff 'REDUCE REUSE RECYCLE' between 13-17 October 2015 as part of the Exchange in Roath Festival.

In 2011 ThinkARK launched the first Trade School Cardiff with the aim of encouraging people to share their practical skills and knowledge and experience in in exchange for goods or services. Over 70 people registered for the first ever Tradeschool, learning a whole range of skills from basic sewing, bike maintenance to approaches to combating boredom with a piece of paper.

For the next Tradeschool, ThinkARK is partnering up with Exchange in Roath (A giant swap shop event) as part of the Made in Roath Festival working with the theme 'Reduce, Reuse, Recycle'.

We will be running classes over four days in two locations (The Pelican Nursery and outside the Mackintosh Centre in Roath) on the 13, 14, 15 & 17 October 2015.

From household hacks to revolutionary repairs, we are looking for people to share their skills, information and knowledge as part of the exchange.

To run a class - this is the way it works:
- You decide what you can teach to other people (think about the things you love doing like drawing, cooking, gardening, computers, fixing bikes, telling stories - your class can be as serious or as fun as you like).
- We can help you to plan and run your class.
- You decide what you want in return. It could be socks, it could be DIY, it could be an interesting book, whatever you need.
- Register your class.

To attend a class:
- Find a class and register online
- Decide what you will exchange from the list
- Turn up and have fun!

If you are interested in getting involved or would like TradeSchool to come to your community, then get in touch!
