The newest crafty activity at BFOE! On the 3rd Monday of the month at 6.30pm come down to the  Alison St. warehouse where you can have tea, biscuits and Craft! Beth, Mary and Becks will be giving informal tuition and over the weeks we will cover loads of different ways of making things out of old rubbish.

Learn new and different ways to Recycle Creatively together! The craft starts around 6.30 and runs till 9 whilst our regular campaign groups all start at 7.30 so if you want to do both you can always start making something and then slip off to the meeting alternately you can just do craft all evening!

The first Happily Ever Crafter was great, loads of people turned up guys and gal’s, regulars and new faces alike. Juice cartons were the featured material with demonstrations on how to make Tetra pack wallets. People started to elaborate using decorative techniques: buttons, sewing, tape, etc.. this moved on to Tetra pack weaving, and even a discussion of making a oven using the sun and Tetra packs! Tea and biscuits were distributed and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.

We decided to start this regular group after the success of the Christmas craft group It’s A Wrap, where we made bags that were an alternative to wrapping paper to sell at the BFOE Christmas fair. So please come along for tea and craft every 3rd Monday of the month. Join our facebook group to find out more.
