My name is Daniel Chester and Homecraft & Furnishings is my company. Based in Kettering i aim to bring a breathe of fresh air to the current dying high street offering something different and fun for the whole community to enjoy as much as i do.
According to recent studies there is around 1 million tonnes of furniture waste in the UK each year, with textiles not far behind with around half a million tonnes. An astounding amount! It is considered bulky waste and it is destined for the incinerator and landfill.
I believe as well as thousands of other artists around the world that we can do our part to cut that number down and with a lot of hard work even benefit from this opportunity. we can bring back valuable resources into circulation, create beautiful pieces of reclaimed art and even create job opportunities.
Although my company is in early stages and i have a way to go, i have huge plans to help and involve my community.
The purpose of property care is to bring funding to my furniture building and restoration, equip my workshop with necessary equipment and to help my community with affordable work to their property.
