FROM cushions to mugs and candles to phone covers... every item is Made With Care.

Tomorrow a group of care experienced young people launch their new creative and social enterprise making original pieces of art, craft, fashion, accessories and homewares.

The group, aged between seven and 14, come from challenging backgrounds such as foster and residential care and lone asylum seekers.

But now they are gaining support and friendship while creating their first range of imaginative, colourful and unique designs developed over a series of six workshops in Glasgow.

Supported by Articulate Cultural Trust, Made with Care is designed to show them what their creativity is really worth by selling what they make or create to the general public.

This is something they can physically see happening, be really involved in and benefit from socially as well as financially.

Eona Craig, Founding Director of the Articulate Cultural Trust, said: "We continue to be impressed, but not surprised, by the high levels of creativity and enterprise demonstrated by these amazing young people.

"Their energy and ideas are infectious and how they have worked on this project as an ensemble has been inspiring for all the adults supporting them.

"I hope that Made with Care goes from strength to strength and that we can find ways to connect with other young makers across the city and across the UK."

The young people have created designs and materials that have been transformed into high quality, hand-made and original items for home and gifting just in time for Christmas.

They will sell for a profit that will either go back into the project or their pocket or as a donation to the charity of their choice.

Nicole Sim, Youth Advisor, said: "Care experienced young people often don’t think things they create are good enough.

"Sometimes they don’t get much opportunity to be creative.

"This means they don’t put themselves out there as much as they could or should."

Articulate works to ensure the arts are accessible to all by supporting arts access and participation by children, young people and adults who are least likely to engage in creative activity, or who face significant barriers to taking part.

This specialist focus supports improvements in achievement and attainment, empowerment and well-being.

Made With Care is the start of a social enterprise that blends creativity, enterprise and employability for young people who are sometime vulnerable and often marginalised.

Longer term, they would like to have an online shop so they can sell as well as represent young creatives from care internationally.

Another longer term aim is to go to trade shows, concessions and have pop-up shops.

Aisha, age 14 and living in residential care joined the group to make new friends.

She said: "I have been buzzing all week to come back and am so excited about the exhibition."

Made With Care will be in Culture Corner at COLAB at The Savoy Centre, 140 Sauchiehall Street, from 10am to 6pm tomorrow.
