Blueberry Co-op

The co-op is a practical session that teaches valuable skills in a workshop setting. Our learners are taught how to up-cycle products from small wooden bowls through to large pieces of furniture.

They learn how to sand, paint, create shabby chic effects and finally decoupage and design skills. The finished products then go to our three Blueberry shops in York, Selby and Scarborough, ready to sell.

The skills our learners develop incorporate practical skills, following health and safety procedures, being able to plan their own projects and ultimately how to review and improve work. The co-op has a great team atmosphere and is ideal for anyone wanting to develop these practical and creative skills.
