Every construction starts with a deconstruction.

Spruce Up is program designed to educate and raise awareness on the lifecycle of our products. The structure of the workshop has been developed with a strong emphasis on circular-economy and upcycle.

Particpants are taken through a behind the scences look, breaking it down to where a product comes from, what its made out of, how it is produced, and the societal and environmetal impact it has on our world.

The Spruce Up program highlights the importance of hand-craft by employing “creators to be educators”. Local artisans, creatives, and craftspeople play an important role in sharing their craft, tools and techniques to create something by hand. They act as facilitors for participants to explore upcycling through an exchange of knowledge.
