**Operating online due to Covid**

Kaim Shop

Your creative re-use hub

Kaim Cottage, situated in a tucked away part of campus between Business School and Gray's has undergone a transformation over the past two years to become a new hub of activities for the Kaim Shop initative, as well as a social spot away from the hustle and bustle of the busy teaching buildings.

Our opening times are announced weekly on Facebook and Instagram (@rgugogreen, @_kaimshop_), so make sure to follow us and check online before dropping by!

 

Donate or pick-up from KaimShop

After being entirely closed for a good year now, we are very excited to allow drop-off and pick-ups again. We are mainly operating through Instagram right now so make sure to follow us @_kaimshop_ !

Donations: DM us and send some pictures and short product descriptions which we can upload to our account. Once we are in touch we can discuss drop-off times and more.

Pick-Up: Check out our account and find items you want to give a new home to. DM us or comment on the posts. The rest will be discussed after you got in touch.

 

 

What's going on? (Pre-Covid)

Swapshops

We're on a mission to build a more circular economy at RGU, one that see's value in things that would normally be thrown into Landfill, left neglected at the back of the shed, or left lingering at the back of the wardrobe. Two seperate swaphop areas will display a whole assortment of items ranging from cookwear, crockery and household items to DVD's and books, with another area containing a variety of clothing and textiles. What's even better is that you don't have to swap! Feel free to take, borrown or donate, and remember to bring things back if you decide you no longer need them.

 

Workshops

Harnessing the creative talents of our staff and volunteers, the Kaim Shop offers a host of innovative ideas for re-using and up-cycling old clothes, fabrics and textiles to create interesting, trendy, and unique clothing and soft furnishings. Running on a monthly basis, these events give you an opportunity to learn new skills, embrace your creative side, and discover how to give your favourite things a new lease of life!
