4600 Gifts: Ready Set Make! with Kinmos
April 19 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Tuesday, repeating until 19 April 2022
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 hosted by Kinmos at Cambridge Road Methodist Church 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.
Kinmos works with people with lived experience of mental health to be the best person they can be.
Tuesday 12th April: 11am-1pm
Tuesday 19th April: 11am-1pm
