Reskilling Day Saturday 19th October

We are delighted to invite you to Re-skilling 2013 on Saturday 19th October, 1:30pm to 6pm at The Polygon, St Mary’s Church, Ealing W5 5RH.

Reskilling is an important part of the Transition model, enabling us to become more self-reliant. This is the third such event we have run and they are always a lot of fun (read our report on last year’s event).

This year’s workshops include bike maintenance, making and saving electricity, managing food waste, eco jewellery, massage, pilates, natural cosmetics, bread making, jam making, beer can chicken, beekeeping, chicken and pig keeping, knitting, sewing, and food fermentation.

At 5pm a meal made from local produce will be served to the sounds of a local band.

Entry and workshops are free however we would be grateful for donations to help us cover the costs of staging the event.
