Your hosts:

Everyone Needs Pockets is a growing network of 50+ makers, designers, stitchers, knitters, supporters and researchers. The network focuses on how we can work together to grow projects and enterprises that reuse textiles, save carbon and landfill and increase our wellbeing: revamp, repurpose, reuse, repair.

SHARE How-to is a new community space at SHARE Library of Things in the town centre and has been specifically designed and made available for skills and resource sharing.

Future Shed Frome offers practical support to get green and healthy initiatives and enterprises off the ground through building networks, connecting people and start-up coaching. Share ideas, get support to bring them to life, make new connections and learn new skills so that we’re all better equipped for a greener, healthier future. Future Shed is part of Edventure, an organisation supporting community entrepreneurship in Frome.

This session is part of Green & Healthy Frome a partnership programme with Edventure, Frome Medical Practice and Frome Town Council. It is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund’s Climate Action Fund.
