About you

Hi there , so my specific skills are im a artist/ craftsperson who specifically works with waste materials. I run my own very small buisness as a metalworker/ welder and i make furniture, sculpture and other metalworks from scrap metal, from a workshop in lower clapton. I also work alot with tyres and have started in 2016 a project called tyre furniture skills ‘https://www.facebook.com /Tyre-Furniture-Skills’ ,which teaches tyre furniture making as a skill. We started the project in west Africa, the Gambia, and have been running a few training projects in the uk. We have been invited to Kenya in Jan 2018 for several months to run a tyre furniture training project with a project called Wildlife works as part of an effort to curb the poaching through providing income generating skills and tools to communities in mombassa and the Kasigau corridor. My major interest from an environmental standpoint is trees and rainforest protection. Urban orchards and trees for urban communities to improve communities and fight air pollution and climate change. Ways to engage young people with their environment and climate change. I have alot of experience in running workshops and am also a director of a School/ skill centre in The Gambia , in which i organised the introduction of permaculture into the school and a greening the school project, in which we planted moringa trees, bannana , avocado, and created an edible food garden. I am keen to connect with more people in london and the uk who are involved in local community tree planting projects and workshop facilitators who can teach me more about trees, grafting tree maintance and permaculture. I can offer my skills as a welder and creative thinker, workshop facilitator, and waste management/ sourcing waste or recycled materials expert.
