It is a fine thing when you walk into a store and you are welcomed by not one, not two, but an entire group of wonderful people who helped to make the products you can see in front of you.
Made by Mosaic is a social enterprise store run by Mosaic Support Services. The Hello Hobart team were welcomed by volunteers Jerry, Bridget and Amy. Alongside Social Enterprise Coordinator Vicky and Marketing Coordinator Bronte, you can see how this organisation is helping to enrich and improve the lives of people with a disability.
The Mosaic team create the products found in the store including heat packs, candles, keyrings and coasters. The team is empowered to create unique handmade products and celebrate them with the community.
The team contributes by ways of product selection, scent choices, labelling through to complete creation of products. Jerry tells us that just yesterday he and Vicky went to choose fabric for the heat packs.
“My favourite items would have to be the keyrings. Both Jerry and I worked on these ones and it was a real team effort. The knotted part is difficult but I am getting better” | says Amy
