Private Workshops: 

In addition to group/social workshops you can have Thistle Creative Reuse lead a private workshop for you and your group. We offer both in-person and virtual options. Great for parties, team-building events, and more!

Private instruction for your group of 5+ (in person or via Zoom) 
All materials for the project
Recording of your workshop after the live event (virtual workshops only)

We provide all of the materials you will need for each workshop with a guarantee that at least 75 percent of the materials will be reuse materials. We only use new materials for items we cannot source through donations. 

Submit a Private Workshop Request form and we will get back to you for scheduling.
