Shining a light on Colchester's upcycling whizz, Phil Archer


To  celebrate Recycle Week 2017, we are shining a light on the fabulous range of upcycles completed by Phil Archer, a companion living at our Colchester community. 

Phil has always been a keen carpenter, and this was something he was keen to continue when arriving at our community just over a year ago. From starting with a few small paint jobs, to transforming suitcases into seats and bed panels, Phil has gone from strength to strength under the advice and guidance of fellow companion, Billy. 

"I like being able to completely re-invent things for a customer. I take great pride in my upcycles and I'm proud of what I'm able to achieve at Emmaus."
- Phil, discussing his upcycles
