MADE IN WALDEN CIC
We are a Community Interest Company. We run workshops for young people and the young at heart to learn new design and make skills in Saffron Walden using environmentally friendly resources.
Our KIDS DESIGNERS workshops are run with the support of the National Lottery enabling us to provide equipment and methods not available in most homes. Youngsters from 8+ and 12+ make different eco-friendly products such as biodegradeable bird feeders, shopping bags and cute cuddlies. Valuable experience to add to CVs! Young people benefit from manufacturing experience and exploring creative ability.
Careful QUALITY ASSURANCE means some items can be sold and give those young people an appreciation of the value of good product design and careful work. CUSTOMERS buy products to allow us to expand activities and give pride to the young person. COMPANIES buy products that carry branding and eco credentials confident in benefiting the local community.
WORKSHOPS PARTICIPANTS gain skills and experience in a SAFE ENVIRONMENT because as DBS checked organisers we act as safe intermediaries and skilled tutors. ALL OF US help the environment!
