City of Richmond Environmental Sustainability Workshops

I am truly crazy for my Crafternoons. Love them! Case in point - this weekend I had two Crafternoons through the City of Richmond and they were so much fun! We had approximately 15 people in each workshop. A bunch of people ended up taking both. My partner-in-crime was Emy. She originally contacted me last year about proposing classes that would run as part of the City of Richmond's Environmental Sustainability Workshop Series.

The workshops took place at the Richmond Cultural Centre. I used my iPhone GPS to get out there without getting lost. I've been loads of new places lately because of the Crafternoons. It's going to a FAB 2014 filled with new experiences, new people, new adventures!



The first workshop was DIY Stationery. We made fortune cookies, gift tags, cards... These were made using funky wallpaper from Urban Source and cereal box cardboard.



Scrap fabric, paper and random buttons are perfect for the toilet paper roll project - a mini gift box.



Here are a couple of my star participants. Actually everyone was super fun and industrious for both workshops. These two are showing off their floral brooches... And some upcycled t-shirt projects.



The upcycled wool sweater floral brooch was a hit. Everyone was making a few of these. They're super easy and funky!



Some wool sweater birds...



And big thanks to Vicki at Urban Source. Not only did I give away my crafty projects but we also were able to give these certificates away as door prizes. Spreading the upcycling, crafty love in a big way!



My upcycled t-shirt pillow cover found a very happy home. Makes me happy to pass the crafty goodness on. And I made so many kewl new crafty peeps yesterday. Life is good!



I'll be setting up more workshops later this year with the City of Richmond. They are so wonderful to work with!
