Crafts at Christmas

Dates of Crafts at Christmas events

December. A time for fighting over the last Quality Street, consuming a glut of mince pies and wearing your gaudiest Christmas jumper (or is that just us?)  If you need a distraction from the fact that you haven’t started your Christmas shopping yet (still just us?), our Crafts at Christmas events are for you.

The Library’s Crafts at Christmas events have been running for the past four years now and have always been popular. The emphasis has been on recycling unwanted items, such as withdrawn books, old music scores and off-cuts from our bindery. We’ve made everything from paper wreaths and hanging heart decorations, to book trees created from old prospectuses.  This year, you can decorate a bauble, make some bunting or create a 3D card.

The baubles are provided by Robyn Hare, the University’s Glass Blower (yes, the University really has a Glass Blower!). You can see her at work in the video below.

In previous years, we’ve held these events at the Philip Robinson Library and the Marjorie Robinson Library Rooms, but this time we’re holding sessions at three of our libraries. So, you can join us at the Walton Library, as well as the Philip Robinson Library and Marjorie Robinson Library Rooms. There’s no need to book, just turn up, bring your imagination and help us raise money for the ‘If You Care Share’ Foundation. We look forward to seeing you!
