We protect and preserve the environment through reuse and recycling and have recently initiated a new up-cycling venture, which we have called "Carousel".
As you may know, up-cycling involves the conversion of waste material of objects of little use into new materials or products of higher quality. Carousel is managed by Mandy Rippon, who has significant experience and ability in up-cycling.
Carousel has already produced many items, such as furniture, toys, and ornaments from donated furniture or materials which the Scheme would have otherwise discarded because they were of no value or were un-repairable.
Against this background, we are exploring the scope for Carousel to provide some tuition opportunities in partnership with Frenchic Paint, which we use on all our up-cycled projects. If you would like to be kept informed of up-coming Frenchic Workshops, please telephone the Scheme and leave your contact details with Many Rippon.
Below are just some of the pieces commissioned and or up-cycled in the RFS workshop by our skilled staff Dale and Mandy
