Team Building Workshops

We offer a range of engaging and creative Team Building workshops for organisations and businesses across the UK and beyond.

Delivered virtually, our workshops are a great way to bring staff members together to socialise whilst so many of us are working remotely, promoting positive mental health whilst teaching a range of simple repair and reuse skills to create a culture of sustainability throughout your workplace.

We offer a wide range of fun and engaging workshops around reuse and repair, providing an interactive way to engage staff with your organisation’s sustainability commitments and CSR targets.

If you’re interested in increasing engagement around sustainability within your team, there is also an optional add-on for us to provide a 15-minute talk that can be tailored to your businesses interests and objectives.

By booking a workshop with us, all attendees will also receive a 5% discount code which they can use on future online workshops with the Edinburgh Remakery, allowing them to continue building on their creative skills and introduce sustainable eco-friendly practices into their lives.

Pay It Forward

As a charitable organisation with a mission to support disadvantaged people across the city, we want to give businesses the opportunity to give even more back to vulnerable communities.

Businesses can now take part in our Pay It Forward scheme when booking a workshop with us. This means that not only are you giving your team the opportunity to learn some great new skills and engage with the reuse and repair economy, you can also help us to deliver the same skills to those who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford them. 

We work with a network of third sector organisations in Edinburgh to identify beneficiaries who are most in need of our support. Learning valuable skills such as repair techniques can help develop confidence, wellbeing, and improve financial literacy and employability skills relevant to the thriving sustainability sector, empowering others to manage and overcome the challenges they face.  

As a thank you for supporting our mission, we offer a number of ways for businesses to share news of their participation in our Pay it Forward scheme as a sponsor of a gifted workshop for disadvantaged communities, to demonstrate what a great impact your business is having on our community. More details of this will be shared with businesses who note their interest in this scheme when completing the enquiry form below.
