This week we ran several craft workshops – in the warm and dry thanks to our neighbours St Josephs who lent us their hall. The workshops were a chance to learn something new. We used willow to make lanterns, carved happy pumpkins and were introduced to Air Plants and making them into fabulous and unusual indoor gardens.
At The Red Shed we continually try to encourage people to try something different. The is a great sense of achievement in creating wonderful things and then taking them home to ‘show off’ to family and friends.
Pat was able to carve pumpkins at home with her grand-daughter, Viv was so please she had created a little garden that made her think of being ‘away somewhere nice’ and Tim felt good to be able to use his construction skills to build a lantern – with great accuracy!
These are the last of our Lets Get Going! workshops and we have been able to encourage over 50 people to get out and get going again after the first COVID lockdown. Hopefully we have given people some positive feelings that will help them through the next lockdown – looking forward to meeting again in December………..
