Meet The Makers 5: Billy

My name is Billy Walden and I am a Carpenter, I was home educated and I have a keen interest in anything mechanical, vintage or antique.  I love repairing things and making things preferably out of reclaimed materials.  I have a rally car called Maureen the Micra and my ideal day out would be rallying or rooting around a scrap yard or wagon breakers.

I like supporting the community and I think that children should be taught things that they enjoy and fun palaces give children a wide range of activities to get involved with.  I think making things should be actively encouraged and children should be discouraged from being on their phones and the internet for long periods of time.  Fun palaces are good for them to interact with each other and learn things whilst having fun.  Learning should be enjoyable and not a pressure, children will learn and understand more this way.  
At Lancaster Fun Palace this year, I am going to be doing a question and answer session about the various projects I have undertaken and I am going to be making something and teaching others how they can make it also.
I can be contacted on my website I am building my educational and fun youtube channel, plenty to see on there from building metal presses out of scrap to my latest rallying videos please subscribe to my youtube channel its just BillyArthur Walden.
