The Alternative Technology Centre (ATC) is a not-for-profit organisation established in 1999 on the banks of the Rochdale Canal in Hebden Bridge. As an educational resource centre, we aim to make sustainability achievable and simply irresistible by working from a strong base within our local community to provide inspiration, accessible information and advice to improve the quality of life using sustainable means – economic, environmental and social.

Based in Hebden Bridge and undertaking commissions nationally, all items are designed and handcrafted by Bee Jasko who is the creative force behind Rehash Panache. Whether a private home, public space, event or festival we can design and create the perfect piece to meet your brief.

Noisy Toys is all about having fun experimenting with sound. We make amazing instruments and we let you play on them. Our Interactive Installations will have you taking part in a steam-punk cyber-glam cacophony of free creative expression! Our hands-on science demonstrations will have you vibrating (literally) with 1000 watt sound waves, dodging lentils and alien Goop and taking part in the internationally acclaimed Noisy Toys Nose Test (how squeaky is yours?).
