Out Of The Dark

Out of the Dark recycles, repurposes and revamps salvaged furniture as a means to train, educate and employ young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.

I'm a volunteer for Out of the Dark and this blog is about the project and our artistic inspiration.

  3. Out of the Dark: Turning Mid-Century Furniture – and Young Lives – Around

    This post was originally written by Megan for llustre.com.

    Out of the Dark recycles and revamps unloved furniture while offering training and employment for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.  A truly inspirational project run by Jade and Jay: who have combined their passion for design with their continuing work helping young people get back on the right track.

    We traveled to High Wycombe to meet Jade, who showed us round the Out of the Dark workshop and told us about the remarkable story of Street Dreams – the charity she and Jay set up over ten years ago.  They work in the Thames Valley area, providing young people with the emotional and practical support they lack in their home lives, which most us take for granted.  At Out of the Dark, young people who have been through the Street Dreams workshops are given a unique opportunity to be trained while in paid employment.  In this creative environment they develop practical skills as well as a work ethic, preparing them to enter the world of work, and often exceeding their own – and everybody else’s – expectations.

Melvin Galapon, The Future Is Now

Every year, the pace of life gets a little bit faster, and the amount of technology we use grows. Maybe that’s why we associate fast movement and cold steel with the future. Anyway, enjoy the picture!

Annie Spandex » How To Make Platform Shoes
This is one of those projects that would never, ever have occurred to me in a million years. Flip-flops to platform shoes? Amazing!

If you have any old flip-flops, here’s a great way to recycle them. Happy crafting!
