Join us a BTHQ for a day of Mindful crafting.
We have organised 4 separate craft activities for you to sit and enjoy.
When we designed this day we asked you if you’d like to know what you’d be making or if you’d rather a surprise.
The response was totally 50/50 so we are just going to give you a rough outline on this page. (If you’d really really like to know exactly what you will be making, please message us. We will tell you, but we ask you to keep the secret) 😉
Craft number 1 is clay and paint based
Craft number 2 is fabric-based with really basic machine work
Craft number 3 is paint and pen-based
Craft number 4 is bead-based for homewares!
Each activity is BRAND NEW to BTHQ and has not been taught at the venue before as part of a crafty cuppa or metime meetup.
You need zero previous experience at anything. Templates and examples are provided for all activities if you are a person who needs to copy. But if you want to let your inner artist out then that is actively encouraged!
Rough schedule for the day:
9.30 – 9.45 Arrival, tea/coffee welcome and introduction
9.45 – 11.15 activity 1
11.30 – 1pm activity 2
1pm – 1.45 Lunch (please bring a packed lunch)
1.45pm – 3.15pm activity 3
4pm – 5.30pm activity 4
Each activity takes place in a group of 2 (due to covid restrictions) and will be 1st come 1st served to encourage the groups to mix (seated at a distance), but you will all get a chance to try each craft. You will have a finished object or 2 to take home from each activity.
All materials, instruction and refreshments are provided (these will be limited and in paper cups). Whilst you should not get terribly messy in any of the activities we advise you to wear older clothes or bring an apron for the paint based activities.
Please bring a tray or shallow box with you to transport some of your makes home safely as they may require additional drying time.
We have made a few tweaks to this day to allow it to take place during the current restrictions. What was an even for 16 people has been scaled down to 8 in total across 2 rooms. All areas and equipment will be cleaned down and sterilised between each activity to avoid cross-contamination.
