4600 Gifts: Ready Set Make! at Midlands Arts Centre
June 5 @ 11:30 am - 4:15 pmFree
Craftspace invites the people of Birmingham to hand-make gifts for the 4600 athletes competing in 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
