Street Gems is a creative project. We offer the opportunity for the homeless and those vulnerable to homelessness to get involved in a variety of creative projects as individuals or in groups. Street Gems is funded by selling the items made in this creative space. In the Street Gems studio we have a woodwork room, sewing machines and pattern cutting resources, all things arts and crafts, furniture upholstering etc. This wide range of resources allows us to be fully creative.
As a volunteer in Street Gems you can help us by making creative pieces to sell and by teaching your skills to others. We are also opening a shop soon which will sell Welcome Home furniture and Street Gem products; volunteers are needed to help out in the shop as well as at craft fairs, festivals etc.
