To fill these opportunities Brands and Ann take two approaches:

a. Someone local who is available.
b. Graphic design course or someone who has it as a hobby.
c. Art student or painting as a hobby.
d. Apprentice carpenter or interest in woodwork.
- Posts the opportunity on the opportunities board and awaits an application.
