Create Your Own Up-cycled Tire Belt

Waste tires and inner tubes are becoming a huge problem across the globe. Every year more than  3 billion tires are thrown into land fill sites which is having hugely destructive affects on our environment. We need to change and find alternative methods to deal with waste. That change starts with you!

Come along and create a unique belt from a rejected or worn bicycle tire! Express your environmental consciousness through your newly found creativity. Choose from a vast range of coloured tires and different buckles to create your belt from. Laura, will provide all the essential tools you will need. She will pass on her experience of crafting and up-cycling which will enable you to unlock your inner creativity and create something truly distinctive and eco-friendly. Rejected and worn tires are a great alternative to leather; suitable for vegans and vegetarians. Wear your new belt with pride knowing it’s 100% cruelty free!
