Ostrero offers schools the chance to be part of Making Circles, a national circular economy design challenge, culminating in a display at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh June 2019.
Primary and secondary pupils get a hands-on design experience with an Ostrero representative and a maker over an afternoon. This special design challenge allows the pupils to creatively solve problems about waste and resources through, whilst also learning basic handmaking skills.

The Living Memory Association (THELMA) was established in 1984. It is an Edinburgh-based group that aims to bring people together through reminiscence and oral history work. They encourage people to become actively involved in their community, share their memories, learn from one another, feel valued and respected, and give their knowledge of the past to younger generations.
