Lots of things are happening at Kirton in Lindsey Town Hall as winter turns into spring.

Getting crafty

  • Powertex Garden Plaque Workshop
    Saturday 10th March, 1.00pm to 4.00pm
    Powertex is a water-based, non-toxic, environmentally friendly sculpting medium. It can be used for making sculptures, paintings, decorative objects and jewellery — recently featured on the crafting channel Hochanda. The workshop will be taught by Jill Cullum of Purple Meadow Arts and, in this workshop, you will be making a garden plaque, which after three weeks, will be fully weatherproof to put outside. All materials will be provided, including an assortment of embellishments to create your own unique design. The workshop will take two to three hours and costs £25.00. Booking is essential by calling Sharron on 07752 246255.
  • ‘Make Do and Mend’ for the 21st Century
    Saturday 17th March, 10.00am to 4.00pm
    Joelle Harris presents a day of upcycling and mending workshops. Joelle is a passionate follower of ethical fashion and it is her goal in life to keep clothing out of landfill. Bring along clothing from your wardrobe that you don’t currently wear because it needs mending, altering, or completely remaking. Joelle will guide you through the process of altering and repairing as well as suggesting what can be done with those items beyond wearing. In the morning you can make a bag or a cushion cover (or something else) from an item of clothing such as an old shirt, or using fabric such as eco-printed samples from previous a workshop. In the afternoon we will get stuck into repairs and alterations. Bring your own sewing machine if you have one, but we will have a few spare if needed. The cost of the workshop is £7.00 per morning (10.00am to 1.00pm) or afternoon session (1.00pm to 4.00pm) or £12.00 for the full day. For more information or to book a place call Sharron on 07752 246255.
