Planet Christmas: Festive Decorations to Make with Friends

14th December @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


CREATIVE CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE:  Come along and start or rekindle your sewing skills with a younger family member – each creating some lovely traditional family Christmas decoration ‘heirlooms’ out of felt to give as gifts and hang on the tree.

Learn the intriguing art of Running Stitch and Blanket Stitch to make a Christmas Pud gift basket and more. This fun and relaxed workshop will leave you wanting to do more together and you will have lasting mementos of the day.

Enjoy creative and simple sewing together with someone from another generation who cares about you 🙂

Tickets are sold in pairs and all parents, carers, step parents, siblings, extended family members, uncles, grandmas, mums, dads and BFF’s are all very welcome to come along and enjoy designing and creating your decorations together. Suitable as a home schooling activity.

Suitable for ages 9-99 and all outlooks in between. We will be using sharp scissors, sewing needles and pins.

We will be working with sustainable wool felt, (plus we have a vegan option of non-animal felt) and recycled decorative scraps, buttons, ribbons and glue. All equipment and materials of your choice to make 3 items each, (or finish them at home) will be provided.

Please also bring along your own treasured oddments of ribbon, buttons, beads etc that you may like to include in your design.

Tickets sold in pairs to any two people of a different generation – youngsters will need someone older with them. Oldsters will need someone younger with them! Why not bring your dad, a great aunt or your favourite neighbour?……..

£18 per pair of tickets. Available from Ocean Studios, Royal William Yard.
