July Workshop Blog

June 15, 2019


At our May market we ran a series of workshops hosted by talented crafters and they were a big hit! Lots of you booked on to workshops including Calligraphy, Needlefelting and Printing and we had so much great feedback ... so we then got to selecting more workshops for the next market!

 

So that brings us to now and we are so excited to reveal July's workshops ! We've added a few more sessions this month including a couple of outdoor sessions, which will of course depend upon the Great British weather, but will be super fun!

 

 

Another different thing about these workshops is that The Crafters Market will be donating 10% of every booking to Mind as part of their Crafternoon campaign (we will be doing a blog about everything we are doing to support the cause at our next market, so keep an eye open for that!). They hold their Crafternoon every year to promote mental health and encourage everyone to spend time together. To find out more about Mind head over to their website https://www.mind.org.uk/get-involved/donate-or-fundraise/do-your-own-fundraising/crafternoon/

So join us to support Mind and spread the joy of crafting !!
