Cati at local Christmas Faires this weekend!

This weekend was a busy one warmed by mulled wine and red-shiny decorations at the two Christmas I attended at St. Luke’s Community Centre (Islington) on Saturday and the WinterFest at Bruce Castle (Haringey) on Sunday!

Cati with Tottenham WoodCraft Group!

On Thursday 14th and 28th, I joined Tottenham Woodcraft Group to deliver creative recycling sessions with their children on paper and tetrapack! We made fantastic pencil-pots and animals from loo-rolls, and placemats and wallets from tetrapack!
