About The Event
Christmas is a wonderful time of year, but it is also unfortunately a time of excess waste: decorations, packaging, gift wrap, food… But it doesn’t have to be!
In this relaxed and festive workshop, we will show you how to craft a sustainable and home-made Christmas. You will be upcycling a wire coat hanger (dry cleaner) and unwanted textiles, clothes or fabric scraps to create your own beautiful personalised fabric wreath, which you can reuse, year after year. We will teach you how to wrap your presents waste free and give you easy tips and tricks to plan a celebration that you and your dear ones won’t forget.
An inspiring session to learn more about low waste living, exchange sustainable Christmas tips and ideas and get into the festive mood! All tools, materials and refreshments are provided.
Feel free to bring any fabric or old clothes you wish to upcycle and a festive snack to share.
