On Saturday, we held a DIY Christmas gifts workshop in our Eco-Library. We made boxes, notebooks and luminaries; Staff had fun preparing lots of examples made out of reused postcards and different papers so that everybody could choose the perfect presents to make for their families and friends.
Thanks to Adam from Alfalfa House, who was the co-organiser of the event, we had one and a half page of advertisement in the Inner West Courier which was amazing, thank you a lot to our friends at Alfalfa House.
The workshop was supposed to last for two hours, but everybody had so much fun that we stayed for over an hour more, until the store closed and The Bower staff sadly had to go home, including Thuy, who gets special thanks for helping out and lending her binding machine.
It was great to see the participants being so creative: I explained the basics of every project at the beginning of the workshop, and everybody modified and improved them with their ideas.
A big thank you to all the participants! We had lots of fun here, and we hope your families and friends will enjoy their handmade presents!
