In April this year, Guernsey Caring for Ex-Offenders started weekly craft workshops where people we are supporting can come together and create something to keep or give as a gift to a loved one. Each month we follow a theme and learn new techniques or skills. So far, we have enjoyed making mixed media decorations, decoupaged pots and figures, wet felted pictures, needle felted animals and pompoms.
We received a grant to help us get started and our ongoing costs are roughly £8 per session. We aim to make more items which we will eventually sell so that we are self-funding in the future. In the meantime, we would greatly appreciate anyone who would be willing to sponsor a session to help top up our materials.
