During a few hours, an afternoon or a weekend, you will learn to deal with waste in a creative way. You start by building your own ‘drum kit’ out of waste. With 2 drumsticks/spoons, pots, pans, cans, barrels, … we learn about rhythm and dynamics. Once we have this under control, we will play as a band. Together we make our own song and also record it. Afterwards, a small performance is possible.

Everyone has a sense of rhythm! Making music together also creates a unique bond. During this workshop, you use all kinds of good-sounding rubbish to make cool tunes. Everyone can participate, regardless of musical talent or knowledge. Creativity, musicality, listening to each other and discipline are at the heart of these sessions.

Together, these recycled sounds form an eclectic symphony of reuse.
In the hands of the participants, the musical installation grows into a living orchestra that can be used for weeks or months to come.

Duration: half a day to 2 days

Number: from 8 to 40 participants


A magical symphony is created in the enchanted forest when children and adults take inspiration from the abundance of natural materials around them. Branches become rhythm sticks, leaves transform into soft rustling shakers and hollow tree trunks serve as natural drums. Using creativity as a guide, a lively forest orchestra emerges, in which each participant adds a unique world of sound. The shared adventure of making music with forest finds connects people with nature in a special way, and lets them discover the harmony between humans and the environment. A symphony of natural sounds that blur the boundaries between man and nature.
