This one day workshop will look deep into current economic and cultural practices to see how we get unknowingly trapped into resource-wasting behaviours, and will offer practical options for making personal changes.
Using building with salvaged materials as one aspect of a more earth-friendly lifestyle, the workshop will feature opportunities for personal revisioning and also the physical examination of a new building on site that was constructed using approximately 50% salvaged material.
- Why our current economy doesn’t support the reuse of materials.
- How to create a reuse focus in your own life.
- Lifestyle implications of a personal reuse philosophy.
- Limitations of building with salvaged materials.
- An example of a building constructed with about 50% salvaged materials.
- Personal visioning around achieving greater reuse of materials in your own life.
David Shackleton has made the reuse of materials into a personal hobby of many years, and is currently adding the use of salvaged materials as a business focus for his construction and renovation work.
He is an experienced workshop leader who offers interactive and experiential processes for sustained learning.
