Welcome to Upcycle, the event that provides the opportunity to inspire, create, celebrate, innovate and encourage people who are rethinking, reinventing and reusing things people throw away.
Upcycling, also known as creative reuse, is the process of transforming by-products, waste materials, useless and/or unwanted products into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value. Upcycling is different from recycling where products are broken down into their base products and then remade into a new consumer product.
A visit to upcycle will inspire you through exhibitions, demonstrations and our upcycle market that will showcase and celebrate products, techniques and businesses who turn rubbish or waste products into beautiful, unique or useful items.
Create your own upcycled project by attending our upcycling workshops. Use your creativity, and innovation to help solve the global waste problem.
Celebrate people who are already upcycling with our upcycle awards. See the innovation and creativity of current upcyclers.
Encourage the next generation through the upcycling schools competition where schools enter upcycled projects for judging and display.
