Types of workshop:
- School workshops: group workshops, usually two hours long, in which children explore a specific theme or task (see School Workshop List). These workshops are usually booked by school teachers and holiday programmes. Class workshops can be done as excursions to REmida, or as incursions, at your school or centre. The cost of these workshops is based on a flate rate charge plus additional children. For more information, see School Workshops Info and Costs.
- Early Years Program: The REmida Early Years Experience is new to 2013 and has been developed to provide the Early Years with a program that introduces concepts of sustainability through “valuing waste”.
- Out of School Care workshops: Workshops are available for school holiday programs. Check out our OSHC workshops and send through a booking form for confirmation of your prefered dates.
- Professional Development: REmida runs several professional development workshops which encourage teachers and educators on how to use REmida materials in their learning environments encourage and inspire the use of reuse materials as a sustainable option for all learning environments.
- Festival Activities: festival activities are available as a ‘drop-in’ format or installation space. Festival activities are set up for most of the day or the length of your event, and are priced based on the number of hours and the number of facilitators needed. For more information, see Festival Info and Costs and Festival Activities List.

Workshops at REmida aim to encourage young people to build a relationship with waste and to see how useful and inspirational these materials are, and the endless possibilities they have for reuse.
Excursions to REmida are a great experience for all involved. Participants have two full rooms of unique materials to choose from for their projects in the setting of our creative reuse centre,
An Incursion to your school is available, while we are able to pack great materials for these workshops, they are limited, and travel costs apply.
All workshop overviews have curriculum links to provide teachers with support in their planning and our workshops can be used as a springboard for further possibilities back in the classroom. The overarching curriculum link to our entire programme is sustainability1.
Currently ACARA Curriculum links have been included for English, Science and Maths. Remaining links come from the WA Curriculum Framework2. REmida will add new ACARA curriculum links as they are introduced.
