Wed 10th January 2018

Our Re:Imagine project, kicking off in Livingston on 22nd January 2017, is looking for 16 and 17 year olds to sign up.

Offering practical work experience and accredited training, you will design and create unique, upcycled products using pre-loved furniture, vintage textiles, and unwanted scraps.

Through reimagining these source materials, participants will unleash their creative flair, making furniture over while gaining valuable skills in quality design, manufacturing, customer service, retail and enterprise.

Participants will receive a £55 weekly training allowance and travel expenses (subject to Stage 2 Employability Fund eligiblity).

The 10-week programme will run from 22nd January 2018 until 29th March 2018. Workshops will take place at The Vennie, Knightsridge Adventure Project, Knightsridge E, Livingston EH54 8RA.
