Banner making workshop

🕐 Friday, April 7, 2023

🏢 Zero Waste Hub, 22 Bread Street, EH3 9AF

SHRUB Coop is hosting a banner making workshop in the Zero Waste Hub. This session will be facilitated by our sustainable fashion volunteers who have a passion for getting folk sewing!

The focus will be on making fabric banners rather than paper or cardboard ones. This could be a banner to take to a protest, or simply to hang in your home. We will be providing limited material so please do bring along some appropriate fabric if you can. Old cotton or polycotton bed sheets make a great canvas to work on.

Sewing machines, needles, thread and fabric scissors will be available for use. You can buy hot and cold drinks in our cafe too.

This is a free and non-ticketed event but we would appreciate donations for fabric and to support our project going forward.

The event runs from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.

See you there!


The Zero Waste Hub is on the ground floor with a small step at the entrance. A ramp is available upon request. All the public spaces throughout the building are step free and there are gender neutral and powerchair accessible toilets (no changing places toilet) with hand rails.

SHRUB is a sober space with quiet music and low lighting. Noisy sirens do go through the neighbourhood. We do not have a hearing loop installed.

Our venue is located near bus stops served by the following routes: 2, 35, 34, 16, 11, 24, 12, 10, 36, 47. There is limited on-street parking and paid parking on Castle Terrace (roughly 300 metres away by foot on partially cobbled path or 400+ via flatter paved paths).

If you have further questions regarding accessibility, please contact the Zero Waste Hub on 0131 281 0583 or at
