Mindful Making at the Welcome Fair

Unwind and create your own bookmarks and keychains with assistance from facilitators from BA (Hons) Textiles in Practice. All materials provided!

All students welcome

Welcome Fair, Wednesday 31 January 11:00am-4:00pm

The Union Main Hall

Get creative and unwind at our free bookmark and keyring making workshops at January Welcome.

Creativity and craft are great ways to improve mental wellbeing, find community, and find joy in learning a new skill. Facilitators from BA (Hons) Textiles in Practice will teach you how to use traditional passementerie techniques to weave your own bookmarks, or how to use a punch needle to create your own custom key rings.

All materials will be provided, and no booking is necessary, so just drop in and get making!
