As we were walking away from the afternoon, we couldn't help but reflect how amazing it was that in three short hours you had managed to teach a rather large group of novice fascinator makers to produce fascinators we would all be proud to wear in the future.
We'd all highly recommend you to hen groups of the future!
Come Join in Our Upcoming B&Q Crafternoons
Over the past few months we have been running a series of pottery painting workshops for some very special B&Q events all around the UK. Most recently, we got crafty in Ipswich, helping to provide a fun customer experience as part of B&Q's efforts to raise awareness of Butterfly Conservation's hard work.
During our time at B&Q Ipswich, there were butterflies galore! From balloon animal butterflies, to some fantastic butterfly face painting, down to our very own butterfly inspired pot painting workshop. It proved to be huge success with kids and adults alike stopping by our crafts area to get involved in a mini crafternoon during their visit to the B&Q store. Everyone did a great job painting their very own plant pot, which they got to take away and plant our free lavender plants to encourage more butterflies to flourish!
Following on from our recent events with B&Q in Bristol, Exeter and Ipswich, we're happy to announce even more collaborations over the next two weeks. We'll be at the following locations running more of our free drop in crafternoons:
- B&Q Merthyr Tydfil on Sunday 11th September (12pm-3pm)
- B&Q Swansea on Sunday 18th September (12pm-3pm)
- B&Q Speke, Liverpool on Saturday 24th September (12pm-3pm)
- B&Q Leyton, London on Saturday 15th October (12pm-3pm)
So if you are nearby any of these stores, make sure you stop by to pick up your DIY essentials and try out a little bit of free crafty fun! For each event, we've developed a new activity, so you will have to pop along on the day to find out what you could be painting! Remember to share your painting masterpieces with us over on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook.
We always enjoy putting together bespoke and exciting creative customer experiences. So if you have a special event you are planning and want to include an alternative craft workshop for your clients and customers to get involved with, then get in touch to tell us more.
