Workshops / Upcycling
At our warehouse premises we have dedicated workshop space where our volunteers are busy making items from pallets. We have a variety of items available and they can be viewed in our latest brochures.
Volunteers are also upcycling furniture, turning a shabby / broken item (something that might have ended up in landfill) into a useable smart piece of furniture. Some of the items are sold through our shop and others are passed onto individuals and families referred to the Dorcas Project.
Following an upcycling course at SCRATCH, volunteers made the following comments: -
- I enjoyed the course which caught my imagination about the things we can do to up-cycle. Have been working on various projects every week since the course. Items have been supplied to people who need furniture, and some have been sold.
- I'm feeling rejuvenated because it's encouraged me to be creative and happy because I'm still able to do it to help raise funds for charity.
