What you'll do

A warm welcome awaits you at Studio 6:17 and an awesome world of upcycled furniture, textiles, jewellery and art.
This experience is perfect for groups, couples, solo's and teens.

Come join the eco journey to sustainability and become an upcycler. Help divert bicycled inner tube from landfill by transforming it into exciting wearable pieces. Favourites are printed chunky cuffs, spikey or seaweed inspired necklaces and bracelets or feather earrings.

Inner tube is also known as vegan leather because to it's resemblance to leather. It's an amazingly versatile and durable material and easy to work with. Some call it junk, but we call it marvellous!

You'll start by preparing the tubing, have a practice cutting and check out some finished items for inspiration before getting down to creating.

You'll leave the session with new skills, inspired and feeling happy with your upcycled piece and your contribution to a more sustainable world.

Meet your host, Rose

Host on Airbnb since 2018
  • Identity verified
Caroline and Rose love to upcycle and diverting waste from landfill. We've collected bicycle inner tubes from local repair shops and turned it into an exciting opportunity for you to learn new skills and become an upcycler too.

We've been working with inner tube professionally since Jan 2015. Our largest group at the Royal Botanic Gardens, was for 350 people. We have taught in schools, festivals, fairs and other charitable organisations.

Rose hand cuts her 'leaf necklace' with astonishing speed and Caroline loves sharing her extensive knowledge which is always a pleasure.
