Mosaic Workshop

Monday 6 July. 21 people attended the workshop held in the polytunnel on Bulwell Forest Garden. There was a steady flow of people helping out, on average for 30-45 mins, and the flow of people worked really well. The sign is being finished off at further craft sessions in the coming weeks by local people who are all keen to continue the work. Feedback was great, and people particularly enjoyed the quiet pace and social aspect of the session.

We hope to work with Tesco throughout the year and put on more craft fairs so please look out for future dates.

Thank you to all the craft stall holders for supporting our first craft Fair. We hope you enjoyed joining us as much as we enjoyed arranging it!
