At Bamboo Creative, it’s not just about bamboo – but also up-cycling to prevent unnecessary waste and to re-utilise resources – co-creating projects which facilitate community and environmental well-being and education through enabling PRACTICAL skills and innovations to be applied in Local Communities through upcoming special workshops and collaborations.

Our regular programs create a framework to seed/enable the development of our Outreach projects  where you may come and attend your internship now or at a later date – A percentage of funds are also used to collate course content and videos to be made available online and accessible… see our Facebook page for updates.
