Event description
Join us for a fun arts & crafts session where you can make art using items you’d normally throw away, or finish an existing crafts project.

About this event

In the last year a lot of people have turned to art as a way to express themselves and be creative at home. This event is a craft-along where we get to know each other while being creative. We’ll give you 30 minutes to create a piece of art by using things you’d usually throw away or recycle (think toilet rolls, egg-cartons, bottle top lids) and any art supplies you have. (If you’re stuck for inspiration, we’ll provide instructions for quick crafts (like origami), or you can finish of an existing craft project. Whether it’s a Picasso or a Piccas-NO, show us what you’d done and maybe even win a prize in our virtual art show! Children are welcome to join in the fun too. We’ll share our creations to the group and showcase our favourites on Twitter (with your permission).

We’ll also welcome people to share any arts and crafts projects you’ve completed over the past year. Whether it is a portrait or pottery, crochet or candle-making, we’d love to see what you’ve been up to!
