As the co-founder of former charities Street Dreams and Out of the Dark, Jay has been a huge source of motivation for thousands of disengaged and disadvantaged young people over the years, and now he is getting involved with a variety of projects and organisations to support other charitable or educational causes. If you would like Jay to get involved in your cause please get in touch with us.


Dudley College

Dudley Sixth Form College’s Product Design tutor got in touch with us recently and asked if Jay could help with widening some of his students’ horizons and inspiring them to think outside of the box. Hosting them at the workshop was actually an inspiration to us, hearing their dreams and ambitions really got us going.

Here’s to “Sharing knowledge and experience with younger generations to enthuse us to work harder to have an affect on more young people”…


Maws Craft Centre

It was really thrilling to be asked to help at the opening of the Tile Press Cafe at the Maws Craft Centre in Ironbridge; Maws Trading has been re-invigorating and re-launching the venue as a creative hub for Shropshire, and giving the opportunity for amateurs and professionals alike to come together under one roof to make things, share skills and sell products. We need to support such initiatives and make sure more of them open up across the UK.


Heritage Crafts Association

In March I was invited to do a talk at The Heritage Crafts Association Conference, ‘Making is Good for You’ - this was a real honour, and a nice chance to talk about how I bring a contemporary twist to heritage crafts.
