Felt Cactus & Paper Flowers | Sunday, 12. July 2020

Postponed until July 2021. Date to be confirmed.

In this short drop in workshop you will learn how to make a recycled felt cactus and folded paper flower with the Communitas Wellbeing Project.

The felt cactus was devised when the group received a donation of felt fabric scraps of irregular shapes and sizes. Most of the felt was in various green shades. Around the same time the group received another donation of mixed coloured beads. Keen to utilize their donations with other recycled items the felt cactus was born.

You will also learn how to make a beautiful folded paper flower. This skill has been passed on by one of the members of the group.
