Art by Tiles was established some 16 years ago. They are wall and floor tiling specialists in the domestic, commercial and industrial markets. They are proficient in marble, stone and granite and work primarily in the Macarthur area.
Owners Domenic Spagnolo and John Pacini are keen to give back to the community and have been offering work placements every week, to Year 11 and 12 students who are studying Construction as part of their Higher School Certificate, for years.
Having a passion for both young people and wall and floor tiling, Art by Tiles wants to expose the younger generation to their trade. John says “Supply of tradesmen is low and we need to be encouraging the students. We discuss our trade and explain the many other construction trades to give the kids an idea of what is available.”
Domenic adds “The students mostly labour for us, clean the tiles, move tiles and keep the area clear of dust. We like to keep them busy and have had quite a few girls come through the MWLP Linking Youth program. We encourage students to ask questions and have offered some of them casual work. The program is a good way to assess their potential.”
