Funny Wonders Volunteers

Funny Wonders, a community arts group in Buxton, is looking for volunteers for two of its projects and for people to get involved in general.  

First, for helpers at workshops for the Buxton flowerpot people project. Help them 'Fill Buxton with Flowerpots' this July. The workshops are 1 or 2hrs with local groups and organisations or drop-in workshops at local community events mostly during May. You wouldn't have to make any flowerpot people (although they are simple to make - just knots in string) but help give out pots, decoration materials and help others to make their own. Helpers are also wanted to promote the project around the town and give out leaflets. Perfect for those wanting to support community arts and bring a smile to locals and visitors to the town. 

Secondly, they are looking for volunteers for their 'Changing Faces' project which is continuing in the summer term leading up to Buxton Carnival. This project involves working with disadvantaged young people aged 11-18yrs on Tuesdays after school. The role involves helping support the workshop leaders and helping participants with their creative tasks. It is perfect for those wanting to build community relationships with young people in the town and those wanting to get involved in creative activities. Training is provided and an Enhanced DBS check is required. 

Please get in touch with Ali at for more information on either project or visit their website
