Cardboard House Construction

It’s not just the architects, engineers and contractors who are currently bustling around Camphill MK. Our community showcases many talents, from baking to weaving, gardening and performance art, but we also have an engineer among us. Here’s Nicky with some of his breathtaking creations using cardboard, paper, hours of patience and buckets of talent!

Nicky told us,

“Hi, my name is Nicky, and I’ve always been interested in construction. I feel that if I didn’t have a learning disability, I would have been an engineer. At seven years old, I was building lots of things out of Lego, and when I was thirteen, I moved on to Airfix model kits of station buildings. Then, when I was seventeen, I realised I could be more creative by making things from scratch, so that is what I’ve done ever since! I love building things, and I am proud to say I was heavily involved in helping to build our community in its early years. I have often exhibited my work in Camphill and the wider community.”
