  • Description


    UPDATE - we are currently looking for people to help us with building maintenance!!
    We are a community project in Somerset, England which is committed to making a difference to children's lives. our Workshop, our creative design studio in Wincanton, we work with schools, families and community groups, making incredible creations from scrap materials. We are always looking for enthusiastic creative people to join our group of 8 workawayers to share a love of recycling and reuse. If you would like to spread the word that we don't need costly materials in order to be creative, get in touch. You don't have to be an artist, in fact we host people of all artistic abilities. You just need to be energetic and ready to help.
    Another important aspect of our work is Safia's international book project. This is dedicated to sending fully illustrated storybooks to children living in war zones and facing adversity, all over the world. In the past years, Safia and her team have gifted over 5 million storybooks to children in countries such as Afghanistan, Syria and Ukraine. Our books go to street children in Mexico City and sometime travel by camel library in Pakistan. KC's project looks for one helper at a time, to help with project planning and our social media. That person has the benefit of being able to hang out with the team. All of our workawayers live in a shared house (it is separate from where we live - and just 5 minutes way) so you have plenty of time to get away from work and explore the surrounding area. It is a fun, creative, positive place to be.
    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.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We are located in the most beautiful part of the UK, near the historic city of Bath and the ancient site of Stonehenge. The teams we host are energetic, caring and determined to make a difference. Our creatives learn and idea share, our book project helpers get to help us choose projects that are working with disadvantaged children all over the world, and ask them if they would like us to send them free books. Anyone joining the group who would like to improve their English is welcome to meet some of the lovely people in our town who offer free English language meet ups - often hosted over a cup of tea (how British)!

  • Aide


    Typical duties would include helping in the design workshop helping children and adults junk model, preparing creative kits, helping us make some incredible wall art. We are dedicating our time to introducing a stress-free creative space to this small town.
    Typical duties for our book project would be helping with our social media, assisting with project planning and helping us look for initiatives in other countries to which we can send free books.
    We also have one space for someone who is looking to join the team as a cleaner. This space is particularly good for someone looking to improve their language skills in English and who likes the idea of hanging out with the gorgeous dog Skye!
