Guerrilla Upholstery

To make the world slightly more comfortable, I like to use the waste products from my upholstery to furnish public spaces, particularly bus stops. A journalist from The Independent called this 'Guerrilla Upholstery' and who am I to argue?

Here's a short film the BBC made about me.

  1. Loving the work and the impressive ideas. I particularly like the Guerrilla Upholstery idea and love it that you're improving the dreary spaces in that beautiful part of the world. Being a native of that area I'll keep an eye out when I'm home.

    Keep up the good work and good luck!

    1. Works ok if you watch it in the Blogger frame, just don't click through to Youtube (it's actually hosted by Blogger, Youtube won't host it). There's a higher quality version here http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2gc4oz_the-guerrilla-upholsterer-in-do-the-bus-stop_creation but it may have adverts.

      Thanks for trying
