Donate and transform your old or broken umbrellas into a Jellybrella!
Our Jellybrella participatory arts project reuses waste to celebrate creativity, diversity and sustainability. The main event is a free family day on May 11th at Sprout Community Arts in Furzedown, offered as part of the Wandsworth Arts Fringe. More info here.

The raw materials we’re using are all saved from scrap, and the key thing we need is lots of umbrellas!
Maybe some of the lost umbrellas of Tooting which gather wasted and folorn in corners of pubs and cafes?
Maybe an old or broken brolly of yours?
Maybe one you find in the road?
You can donate in many ways to the Jellybrella project: your golfing or fishing brollies, pretty parasols, or classic old school British black rolled-up umbrellas.
Where to donate a brolly in March & April:
- Bring to the Tooting Community Garden any Sunday between 11:00 & 1:00. We’re at 5 North Drive SW16 1RN
- Bring to any other TTT meeting – for example the Open Monthly Meeting on Tues 12th. Details on TTT events calendar.
- Leave them for us at the Work & Play Scrapstore
- Leave them for us at any of 3 Wandsworth Oasis charity shops – at Amen Corner, at 40-42 Trinity Road or at 127 Mitcham Lane
- Leave them for us at the South London Makerspace in Herne Hill
Thank you to partners and friends and well-wishers for contributing!
And of course all welcome in May to the Jellybrella experience.

What we’re doing right now is facilitating Jellybrella workshops with diverse adult groups. This week we worked with a group of adults with sight loss at the Balham Resource Centre of the Thomas Pocklington Trust. It was fascinating – we’ve posted the full story on TTT’s facebook page, and here’s a couple of snapshots from the workshop:
