Transform Arts CIC

Transform Arts CIC is a dynamic social enterprise committed to bringing creative opportunity to those who need it most.

We work with children and young people offering creative classes, workshops and events which nurture creativity, confidence and innovation. We deliver bespoke arts projects and are currently developing environmentally sustainable craft kits for sale.

Current opportunities

Creative people needed! to help out at regular after school art classes, plus there will be opportunity to helping out at events, stalls and other classes if desired. We need two helpers for our after school classes which take place at the Selkirk Cricket Club, Philiphaugh. We have a 1 hour class for primary age and another afterwards for secondary age on Mondays in term time. Your role will be to support children with their creativity while they are in the classes, and assisting with all aspects of managing the class delivery. You will help to help set up before and clear away after the classes. You may also be helping to supervise children to stay safe during our short outings. The class is relaxed and fun and the children will be working with a wide variety of art materials and processes. Therefore it is a chance for the volunteer to gain creative skills as well as youth work skills. We also deliver other classes in the holidays and at weekends so there are further opportunities to get involved if desired.

Creative people needed! You will be able to help manufacture & develop craft kits & handmade items, plus helping out at events and stalls. We are a small start up social enterprise and would love to offer volunteering and training opportunities to young people who are keen on art & creativity. The role will involve helping make up craft kits as well as testing out kits and helping to develop the ideas for kits further. We use a variety of materials and processes to make parts which then need assembled into kits. We also are developing a range of finished products that are handmade which we need help with making. This could involve working with wool, wood, metal and more. We also need help with making video content for social media about the kits. We will be attending market stalls and could be selling the kits/products in other settings so volunteers would be ideally able to come and help at times at stalls and events. The role could also be extended in the future to supervising younger volunteers at evening sessions if desired however this would require a PVG in addition.
