The end of a perfect painting day – about 10.30 pm
We work with Shabby2Chic because they support people in our community to achieve their aims of finding skills and employment. Through Sandra’s dedication to recycling and supporting the people most in need in the community to make Blackpool a better place to live and work.
We recently worked with Sandra on workshops with young people who produced the following ‘Shabby chic’ items. We could not post until now as one item was made for a wedding present.

We took a selection of art works created by young people from Blackpool to the Grand Theater for the Breakin’ Convention show on the 2nd June
Commissioned by the Left Coast ‘Growing People’ strand of funding we launch our new project. ‘Fantasy Plant Shop’ on August 25th: supported by the Hub and New Revoe Residents Association. We will be making plants and flowers at a workshop on the day.
In November we will be working with Revoe Learning Academy for a week of workshops to create fantasy plants for the shop.
The project will support the residents in their work with Groundwork and the community to create a community garden in the Central Drive/ Revoe area of Blackpool. We will work with residents of all ages to create the ‘Fantasy Plants’. The Fantasy plants will be displayed in an empty shop on Central Drive Blackpool in December 2014
