Back to News

An exhibition of upcycled furniture produced by the Newton-le-Willows residents was on display in Earlestown Market last month, as part of a project called 22 Dragons.

Paula & Piotr Pietrzak, co-founders of Passsoul Studio based in Newton-le-Willows were awarded a Prototype Projects commission for Round 3 to develop a series of upcycling furniture workshops designed specifically for a group of visually impaired individuals from Newton-le-Willows.
