Snakes Alive!

At Tastex we diversify our training program for supported employees who have intellectual disabilities as much as possible.

We decided that with winter looming we would make “Door Snakes” to block out the winter chill. Door snakes are made from wool off-cuts and are stuffed with recycled yarn. Supported employees practice their cutting and sewing skills during the process, they enjoy using artistic license in choosing the colours to be used.

The St Vincent de Paul Society asked Tastex to assist them by making our Door Snakes for their “Life Skills Mentoring Program—"Fresh Start" which includes hints & tips for reducing power costs for their clients. We were happy to oblige!
