Our social responsibility initiative is run by artist, Chrisantha Chetty. She ensures that our outreach programme puts the wooden waste offcuts to good use responsibly. The idea is based on wooden blocks being a beneficial toy for children to play with. This is because it promotes creative thinking and the shaping of one’s world without any imposed ideas such as race, gender or class constructs. 

The workshop introduces children to recyling and upcycling methodologies through creating a safe and creative learning environment that focuses on play. Children learn to sand, paint and play with wooden blocks – building their world the way they want to see it.

This workshop has been performed in public and private spaces, around South Africa, targeting underprivileged children from various communities and organisations. It is an open source concept developed by the artist and she encourages others to take it and run with it.

Durban Shopfitting and Interiors also donates wooden offcuts to artists, artisans and entrepreneurs working with timber.
