We are producing a 2-3 minute short documentary film about transforming forgotten items of furniture into beautiful pieces of art. We will be using a projector on the wall or monitor screen to present the video to the public.
Folkestone resident Ali Dakin has spent more than 20 years in primary education where the traditional 3 Rs of reading, writing and arithmetic formed the backbone of the national curriculum.
Having retired from teaching, Ali has now switched to the new 3 Rs which are:
Repurposing quality furniture - wooden tables, chairs and other household items to save them from landfill and give them a new lease of life
Reinventing herself as a creative artist and sole trader because she is not ready to retire and women over 50 are not seen as viable in the jobs market.
