Save the Children Craft Workshop

Pompoms, tassels and Walcot St, Bath

Recently, the Save the Children Bath charity shop kindly invited me to host a workshop in their store where I taught a few lovely people how to make pompoms and tassels. After starting the workshop I was so busy and excited to be making things that I took no more photos, but I did take a few at the start…

Here was the pop-up shop they very kindly allowed me to set up in their front window!

What a riot of colour and texture! I was very excited once the woolly goodness had finished exploding out of my suitcase…

There’s a few chainmail bits and pieces thrown in as well for extra dazzle, and they even let me dress the mannequins! Big thankyous for the Bath branch of Save the Children, for supporting local artists and DIY culture.

Had a really nice afternoon and met some really cool people of all ages. Also had some very interesting conversations – one woman refused to partake in the workshop because as a child she had to darn socks before being allowed outside to play. Because of this, as an adult, she has no time for woolcraft! That is a bit sad to hear, but I can respect where she is coming from.

I also had a lovely conversation with a lady who is looking to take up knitting of an evening instead of drinking wine. Bless! I would recommend. If your hands are busy with the steels it is harder to smoke, drink, or compulsively pull out your hair.

Everything on display is also available through Depop*. I can also ship internationally as needed.

I have so many more shaggy coats available…

Sizing is around 8-16 depending on the style (best to check the measurements I use myself as the mannequin and I am looooooooong and change weights seasonally)

Older workshops – rugging, felting, rope macrame. It’s been nice to have a little trip down memory lane.
