Wednesday 23 & Thursday 24 February

Cup Weaving Pen Pots – Add a splash of colour to your desk with a woven pen pot made from paper cups and wool. The possibilities for weaving are proving endless this half term!

Woven CD Dreamcatcher – It’s amazing how many items can be turned into looms for woven craft activities. Join us today to create a gorgeous dreamcatcher from old CD’s to hang above your bed at night. If you have time, transport back to the days of the Vikings by trying your hand at Trollen Wheel techniques to make a beautiful woven bracelet as an added activity too.
