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.

Art work on recycled furniture with young people

In 2013 Mr Dee was asked to work with Shabby2Chic as we have a great working partnership with this fantastic company

http://sandrajohnson.vpweb.co.uk/About-Us.html

Mr Dee worked with a young person to develop  his art work on to a piece of recycled furniture which sold for £60

casey box

The young person who painted this has a real talent for illustration.

We suggested he develop one particular art work for adding to a

t-shirt.

Not only did the young man in  pass his award: gaining confidence and self esteem with regards his skills. He was able to see the potential to take his work forward and develop a  business selling his art work in the future.
