J-P Stacey is a website builder with over ten years’ experience with content-managed sites. His company Magnetic Phield deals with a range of clients, but specialises in helping non-profits and cooperatives, especially those with a focus on environmental causes and sustainability.

His varied experience before becoming a web developer – roles encompassing academia, publishing, as well as project management and development – lend a broad perspective to his problem solving. Having recently moved to Sheffield, J-P hopes Union St will be the perfect hub to grow his network and meet like-minded people – cooperatives, non-profits, charities and social enterprises.

He offers 10% discretional discount to non-profits and is happy to discuss projects with Union St members.

I enjoy solving knotty development problems while trying to put the end user first.

Julie Bart

What’s your business name?
I have two projects going at the moment: Craft Lab & Julie Bart soletrader

What do you do?
I recently moved to Sheffield from France. I am currently working part-time as a self-employed architect, looking to collaborate with local architects. And I am creating a social enterprise that will up-skill people and connect communities in Sheffield.

How did it start?
Craft Lab started because I believe craft skills can change your life and that craft should be accessible to everyone.

What are you working on at the moment?
I am working on making Craft Lab a viable social enterprise and on putting the word out before it even begins. In June, I will hopefully run my first pop-up workshops in the winter garden.

What are you looking to get out of Union St?
Union St is the perfect environment to start a business especially if you are an outsider like me.
