Details of Role: 

We are a Community Interest Company committed to the rediscovery of old games, the invention of new games, and the construction of both. Our aim is to spread the notion of creative games with purpose, to experience the game in a less artificial dimension and share it with others. This commitment is rooted in our personal passion to provide children and adults with exciting entertainment that will stimulate the mind in a more natural dimension. We do mainly work in wood with other natural materials and use non-toxic wax and paint. We are committed to working in an ETHICAL and ECOLOGICAL way, in order to respect the environment that we all live in.

We offer activities at Malcom X Community Centre in St Pauls, Bristol, as well as running events elsewhere. We take part in local festivals like St Paul’s Carnival and Bristol Refugee Festival and many others.

Our selections of the creative Wooden Game are designed to stimulate the brains of children and adults alike, to encourage intergenerational play between children and adults, to encourage community cohesion. Our games express care and respect for our planet, and create a positive atmoshphere of joyfulness, togetherness and unity.

• Can create an atmosphere of togetherness and exploration
• Hold a current full DBS check

How you can benefit
