In fact it was three workshops, a marathon of creativity and happiness.
All those who had applied for a place in the workshops gathered at Koumbi Coffee and Crafts cafe (the cafe I talked about in my previous blogpost).
The first workshop was to make brooches with lace and ribbon.
The second workshop was to make little pots with buttons and wire.
Christie's Trees and more showed us how to make everything.
Yfansi, generously gave all the materials for the workshop and also gifted each participant with a bag filled with lace,buttons and zips.
I made four little pots of buttons
and then I made a wreath.You can learn how to make the wreath in Anna's blogpost here.
In fact my wreath also appeared on television too. Anna was invited at the local TV station ERT3 on Thursday 28th April 2016 to present some handicrafts.here.
In the end all creations were put on the table and are being sold for 2 and 3 euros.
Of course I had to buy some as they are lovely and all the proceeds go to the charity
Initiative for the Child-FRONT (Πρωτοβουλία για το Παιδί). with the assistance of running365.
We all had a great time and really enjoyed spending time on the charity workshop.
In the end I had a surprise too!Poco Loco and Poco Locini gifted me with this lovely wreath made with strips of fabric. I wanted to buy one wreath like this from the Merimna Bazaar but they were all sold so Angeliki kindly made me one!Thanks so much sweetie!
