Upcycling Workshops (Private & Funded) Upcycling, shabby-chic, distressed, upholstery, decoupage, wallpapering, DIY, fixing, mending, crafting, metal manipulation, welding, graffiti art, French polishing, antique restoration etc... The Upcycle market is trending as an affordable means of crafting bespoke furniture. Sales of chalk (furniture) paint have soared in the last 5 years with more new manufacturers entering a once monopolised market (Annie Sloane, Frenchic, EverGreen, Rustoleum). Why it's a great idea √ Positive Feedback from Facebook Followers √ Requests for the supply of upcycled furniture from customers in store √ Minimum Staff √ Volunteer-run √ Retired craftsmen √ Promotes Recycling √ Requests from customers in store looking for creative volunteering opportunities √ Customers that purchase furniture and chalk paint from us so they can carry out upcycle projects at home √ Teaches new skills √ Open to all
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Empowers People Increasing awareness of how to use tools & other electric DIY equipment so women especially can feel confident using these in their home. Ex-offenders can also use the workshops to help integrate themselves back into society. Elderly, disabled and otherwise lonely/isolated members of the public can take part in light arts and craft. Increases employability By providing the tools, materials, equipment, project deliverers and work space we are teaching vital transferrable skills. This in turn helps to regenerate the community. Techniques such as Welding and Metal Manipulation can help people gain valuable experience if they are considering careers/studying to work on the railways and highways. Promotes recycling By implementing 'upcycling workshops' we will be able to widen the current criteria of the items we can accept under the free house clearance service (FHC). This means that we can also remove damaged, broken, repairable items. • Innovative & Trending.
Steps to get it done:
Being able to take pride in your home inspires and encourages people to keep their properties presentable to a high standard. Decorating and furnishing your home mirrors self-respect and confidence. A lot of funding is directed towards housing but once tenants have been housed there is often little support for furnishing. We believe that by providing great quality affordable furniture leads to people living a better quality of life despite being limited by lack of income. By additionally supplying furniture painting workshops we can teach people new skills including the innovative art of upcycling furniture! This project is about bringing together all backgrounds of the community through a common love of art and Interior design. It is a modern creative and trending concept which also promotes thriftiness and recycling! The opportunity for local residents to make new friends and widen their circle of contacts with the view that people benefit via communication.

Give a Dog a Bone UK 🇬🇧 Engaging young people through the trade of #furniture #Upcycling! 🙌🏻Follow our Page and see how this young person transforms this 1950's wall unit into a weatherproof garden bar! 😉👌🏼 ❤️Help us to set up #Community led #workshops in #Enfield 👉🏼👉🏼👉🏼Spacehive.com/recyclerevival 🚀♻️❤️ ✨Please #Donate if you really can 💫 ❤️ NextGeneration #Learn #New #Transferrable #Skills #DIY #Upcycle #Metal #Welding #Carpentry I'm still pushing the Upcycling Workshops for Enfield. We come across so many pieces of good quality items that are just a bit old fashioned or only slightly scratched/damaged. It's these pieces that we have difficulty selling, but it breaks my heart to see good, big quality stuff being smashed up and taken to landfill. Waste sites around the country are bursting at the seams and councils are strained enough with their own flytipping problems & Waste Management! The Workshops coupled with our free collection service would take a huge pressure off of local authorities and even save money and labour!!!! I want to see our borough buzzing alive again. We're sadly losing more and more culture and the community outlook is pretty bleak. There is a still a major chip with older English residents about 'foreigners' getting all the help?! It's so sad. The Workshops would also help to integrate communities & bridge gaps in perceptions. Also how many young people are on a misguided path? This is a major local issue! I'm not saying Workshops will stop young people stabbing each other but the metal welding stuff might attract a few of the dare devil boys!!
