4600 Gifts: Ready Set Make! at Midlands Arts Centre

June 5 @ 11:30 am - 4:15 pm

Ready. Set. Make!

Craftspace invites the people of Birmingham to hand-make gifts for the 4600 athletes competing in the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games

4600 Gifts is an invitation to you, your friends and your neighbours to join in welcoming athletes to the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Together, we will make 4600 hand-embellished gifts, upcycling locally-sourced materials into messages of welcome, made with love in Brum.

Join in one of our workshops at Midlands Arts Centre to turn a simple blank gift template into a one-off, beautiful object that will be treasured forever by our visitors from the Commonwealth.

Crafters don’t need any experience or know-how to take part; we provide everything needed to wrap, knot and stitch.

The finished gifts and personal messages will be presented to a visiting athlete when they arrive for the Games in July.

Each gift will carry a message of welcome from one hand to another, marking a special moment in time for Birmingham.

11.30 am – 12.30 pm
12.45 – 1.45 pm
2.00 – 3.00 pm
3.15 – 4.15 pm
