Our Upholstery classes are open over lockdown, with covid-19 precautions in place.

Commercial Workshop Update

 

Due to the prolonged working restrictions relating to Covid-19, we have taken the decision to close our commercial workshop and therefore are no longer accepting any new upholstery work enquiries.

 

Thanks to the kind support of our many donors, our upholstery training classes are unaffected, allowing so many more clients to continue to benefit in the future.

 

We are pleased to announce that later this summer, with the support of enterprise grants, we will be launching Oakleaf At Home, a home décor and accessories shop celebrating the beautiful artwork and craftsmanship of our clients.

OAKLEAF’S IMPACT IN 2019

Progressed to meaningful work

LAUNCHING SOON

Oakleaf At Home believes in beautiful design and helping people.

 

Our range of stylish and exclusive home accessories add a personal touch to your home décor – every piece is crafted using original artwork, created by people living with mental illness.

Our social enterprise puts people at the heart of the design process, giving them space to focus and express themselves to support their mental wellbeing and take their first steps back into employment.

 

Beautiful home accessories that help others – what’s not to love?

 

Stay in touch for the latest and to receive an invitation to the exclusive launch online.

EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Oakleaf At Home will work alongside our client upholstery training programme to offer employment opportunities to our trainees.

 

A part time employment scheme, generously funded by the Enterprise Development programme in the pilot phase, will offer clients invaluable hands-on work experience in a supported environment. As well as putting upholstery training to work, clients will learn small business skills including marketing, sales and operations.

MEET THE ARTISTS

We are currently working with three talented artists in our pilot phase to create a line of unique and beautiful products perfect for a special treat for yourself or gift for someone special.

 

Watch this space for a sneak preview of our products and our clients’ stories.

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY

Our workshop is continually exploring ways of making sure we operate in the most environmentally friendly way possible.

 

Our electricity to light the workshop is sourced from a renewable energy provider. All materials removed from furniture brought to us for reupholstery is recycled through Grundon.

 

Their state of the art facility ensures that our upholstery waste and offcuts either creates energy from waste or new recycled fabrics. It is important to Oakleaf to help protect the environment.
