To support teenage mental health and inspired by our own eye pillow range, we worked with a multi cultured group of young people at the Orange Box, showing them the process of creating of their very own, hand made and up-cycled Lavender eye pillow. Lavender, renowned for its relaxing and therapeutic properties was used to fill the eye pillows which were hand sewn and embellished using donated clothing. After the positive response and feedback received, we'll definetly be running more holistic health and wellbeing focused sessions in the future, believing this as crucial to the longer term development of young peoples confidence and resilience.
Education and Events
The first Christmas Fair we attended was a welcome invite from a fellow School of Social Entrepreneurs organisation, RE-considered With a passion for rethinking materials in recycled products and projects, RE-considered hold an annual event in their locality of Bradford, bringing together a diverse range of projects with shared values for positive environmental change. Alongside Bradford Scrap, Re-considered's own delicious, food waste cafe and Plenty Preserves, was also running their popular clothes swap event. Eager to support the community event and its ethos, we set up our stand and began some festive up-cycling. Below are few of the star makers, all first time machinists with bundles of enthusiasm and an eye for a cool Christmas Jumper and sparkly appliqué.
