Why Our Workshops Feel So Good

When you take a class with Rebuilding Exchange, you’re part of a story of reuse, renewal, and opportunity. Rebuilding Exchange is a nonprofit with a mission to advance environmental sustainability by reducing waste, and providing people with the support, skills development, and training to find rewarding careers in the building trades.  Below are some examples of our workshops.  Click here to see our upcoming workshops calendar.

Refunds and Exchanges:

  • If you can’t make it to a class, you can transfer your ticket to someone else. Please email indigo@rebuildingexchange.org with their name and email address.
  • If the Rebuilding Exchange Evanston needs to cancel a workshop, we will notify you 24 hours before the class and give you the option of refund or reschedule.
  • We do not currently offer other refunds or transfers between classes.
  • We are not able to accommodate last minute attendees. If a workshop is sold out, there are no open spots.
