Crafty workshop recycles
A COLOURFUL new rug or even a jumper – there are plenty of new skills to pick up by turning something old into something useful.
The Peace Festival organisers are holding a number of events from today for people to come together and learn a crafty new skill using recycled materials.
“It’s a nice get-together where people have an opportunity to learn something new and useful and have some afternoon tea,” organiser Ruth Power said.
Rosemary Sutherland, from the Spinners and Weavers Group, will show how to make an I-cord and the interesting items which can be made with it.
“Mats, jewellery, scarf, beanies and clothes – it’s easy and has a multitude of uses,” Mrs Sutherland said.
Participants need to bring their own wool and two fairly thick double pointed needles but if they don’t have a set, there will be some for sale.
The workshop will take place at the School of Total Education dining hall at the school on Freestone Road, from 2.30pm for all ages and skill levels.
Entry is by gold coin donation and all children younger than 12 will need adult supervision.
