  • Description

    Description

    We are looking for a group of dynamic, fun, imaginative, creative, artistic people to join our community design studio. You will be helping children and adults, unleash their creativity and get to grips with recycling and upcycling. No specific skills necessary, simply a positive approach, limitless enthusiasm and a knack for making volunteering fun and imaginative. Our workshop is dedicated to spreading the message that we do not need to use costly materials in order to be creative. We run countless activities with schools, community groups and children and adults of all ages. It is an inspiring, positive environment. We have hosted hundreds of Workawayers and love the enthusiasm and cultural exchange the system provides. We promise to make your stay fun and vibrant and to offer you a great way to be part of a lively yet hard-working team that will make all the difference to the people in our community. We are a couple with two children, we used to be journalists, we drive an old London taxi as our family car. We host up to 8 volunteers at one time.
