Event description

Description

We invite you to get involved in our new happiness project bringing people together to have fun and spread positivity through making, sharing and turning waste into wonderful.

We have teamed up with The Gallery at 164 in Leeds city centre to deliver a series of free Pom Pom making workshops and we would love you to join us.

At each workshop we will be making lots of beautiful poms from recycled, donated and factory waste yarns and showing you different techniques as well as opening up discussions about simply what makes you happy. We will be asking you for your favourite words, phrases and positive sayings and why they make you feel happy!

We will then be turning your words together with your poms into a unique and colourful exhibition at the gallery for all to see. This exhibition will open on Tuesday 24th October with an opening event from 6-9pm which is open to everyone to attend.

...

The workshops are free and open to people of all ages across Leeds and beyond. Children must be accompanies by an adult. The workshops are being delivered at multiple dates and times between October 3rd and October 14th so please choose from the list.

We welcome group bookings whether that be a community group, youth club, work team or simply a group of friends. If you have a large group then please contact jen@stitch-up.org.uk to make arrangements.

Each participant gets special discounts on drinks at Cafe 164 by showing your eventbrite ticket at the till.

...

If you are unable to attend a workshop date but would still like to get involved then you can purchase a Limited edition #Pomtothepeople making kit from the Gallery at 164 throughout the project which includes instructions on how to get involved.

We are also accepting donations of yarn and would love to hear from anyone who would like to join the Pom to the People volunteer team to help build the exhibition. Must love Poms, and people.
