I enjoy myself here, I like making new friends learning new things.

Would you like to upcycle furniture and see what you can make?

The Upcycling Project, based in Barry, is a social enterprise that offers trainees the chance to learn a variety of woodworking, restoration and other craft techniques. Locating materials from a variety of sources, the trainees help to decide what the end product will be, and then, with help, put their ideas into action.

Trainees attend Skomer from 9am-3pm
