Craft Workshops

Living River Foundation has partnered with Unravel & Unwind CIC, at their base in Gillingham, to bring you a series of craft workshops making products for yourself or donated to local Hygiene and Food Banks for people in need. 

The products we have chosen help you save money and reduce you own plastic footprint, or helps someone else do so. Learn to make your or own or donate for those who can’t afford hygiene products. 

We are working with Medway Food bank, Rochester Hygiene Bank so you can donate extra products you have made to go to someone who needs help to get out of poverty.

Book the following courses!

Courses are held in Gillingham, Chatham, Chatham Maritime, and Rainham.
