ReTweed is a multi-award-winning social enterprise based in Eyemouth. We deliver a range of innovative textiles upcycling programmes where people come together and learn a wide range of techniques and skills in craft design and technology.
We run intensive 12-week training programmes and community-based training for women facing barriers to progressing their lives or careers as well as commercial workshops covering a wide range of upcycling activities and crafts to support our business objectives.
