Thank you for visiting my Crowd Funding Page 

After being made redundant, I was offered an opportunity to get more involved in pageants and carnivals, as well as assist on projects, working with young people, which I fell in love with. I have danced in carnivals and events from a tender age and love to see children's faces light up when they see big costumes coming down the road. 

More recently, I have been approached to set up a project of my own. However, I have limited sewing skills and would like to learn more about carnival projects, in order to ensure the success of my opportunity.  I would like to do a series of short courses, with a view to pass my skills onto young people, in a fun environment. Be it mask making, t-shirt design, bangle making or simply being creative with dance and exciting projects. 

Young people enjoy creating, and the imagination of a child is endless and inquisitive. I enjoy nothing more than guiding, educating and watching people grow in confidence, whilst having an opportunity to be a part in art and culture. I intend to use the money raised to educate myself on some short courses, in areas I feel I could do with improvement i.e pattern cutting and sewing skills, purchase start up materials and for advertising. 

Got an idea like this?
