LifeHouse Pods are multi functioning spaces, room sized and built to be decorated, styled, cycled and upcycled over and over again. Fantastic as canvases to learn practical skills in painting and decorating, basic DIY, styling and colour theory.
The Pods are part of the Seagulls training programme which offers ‘life support’ to build confidence, skills and aspirations whilst showing people who have no concept of home or a safe space how to create their own, personalised, identity-inspired place.
And yes, if you need a blank canvas to style for a photoshoot or podcast interview space, or whatever, the LifeHouse Pods are available for private hire.
The pods primary focus is to provide a training space for people to learn skills in painting and decorating. In between opening and Covid we were able to run 2 bespoke courses for Care Leavers, working with Child Friendly Leeds. The courses were a great learning curve for us and the participants and we hope to be able to run sessions again in the not too distant future. We are lucky in that LifeHouse gives us ample space to socially distance and so we are planning how the courses will look going forward.
We are also planning to run basic decorating skills for the general public.
