art & soul

our Young People’s Upcycling Project

The Art and Soul Project won backing from the National Lottery People’s Projects in 2017, since then our young people have been working hard learning new upcycling skills and techniques.


The beautiful pieces photographed below are wholly unique and prepared by our young people.

Each piece of furniture has a story of its own to share with you from its maker.


We are very proud of our Art and Soul Project and the therapeutic benefits it brings our young people in their mental health journey. Soul Soup provide a safe and guided environment for them to get creative whilst learning new skills.
