Craftbar creates space to explore, experiment, play and learn about sustainable and circular making processes.

CRAFTBAR is conceptualised and produced by independent maker Ryla Dilkes in collaboration with Convenience using circular and sustainable practice to create this unique modular work space. The aim is to create an environment made from reclaimed materials that provides a space for participants to gain hands-on experience working with recycled materials and inspiring them to think about the ways materials could be recycled and reused on an individual level.

This is a multi purpose unit and can be used to facilitate workshops, house tools and materials or something completely different within your idea.

Be creative!
