Spacecraft is a new creative shop project by Space Inclusive based on Hucknall Road. We took the premises on earlier this year; it’s a five minute walk away from our Pelham Road site.
Stella Dowbenko, our Work Placement Coordinator, has overseen a huge amount of creative activity since then and we are at a point when we will be able to open the shop to the public.
Stella said “It’s been a really exciting project to work on – I’m massively proud of the results!”
The shop’s ethos is based on creativity and upcycling. Upcycling is all about transforming by-products, waste materials or unwanted items into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value, which is just as well because Space Inclusive has always been an environmentally friendly social enterprise!
Our clients from Pelham Road, Mansfield Street and Mansfield Woodhouse have all helped in creating products for the site, from cushions to plant pots.
Meanwhile, on the site of the shop, Stella has worked with clients doing different activities such as spray painting, sanding down furniture and decorating to make both the shop and its contents top notch.
We’re really proud of the clients who have worked so hard in making the dream of a shop, where they can create and sell products, into a reality. All the hard work is about to pay off as the shop opens its doors to the public from 9am on Monday 22 May. We’d love you to pop in!
