Empathy and kindness are essential skills that can be practiced and Christmas is the perfect time to turn children’s minds to the practice of mindful making for the pleasure of giving.

What you can expect…

From t-shirt yarn to embroidery, screen printing and lino cutting, fashioning handmade decorations using wood, string and beading, and learning the gentle art of gift wrapping, not to mention the joy of giving and Christmas cheer!

All participants will receive an art journal to record ideas, make lists of the people they know who could use some creative kindness and reflect on their art and what it feels like to spend time and effort to make a gift for someone else.

The Kindness Project

Empathy and kindness are essential skills that can be practiced. Christmas is the perfect time to turn children’s minds to the practice of mindful making for the pleasure of giving. Feel like you are in Santa’s workshop in the Kindling Creative Christmas maker space. All participants will receive an art journal to record ideas, make lists of the people they know who could use some creative kindness and reflect on their art and what it feels like to spend time and effort to make a gift for someone else. 

Materials to make all things Christmas will be available each day so that children can choose to try some or all of the projects on offer to practice the art of giving. Or, spend more time extending one project if you have something special in mind to make.

Monday 17.12 - Yarn with Friends
Get your friends together and learn the Japanese art of Komihimo and make your own braiding star. Try your hand at weaving a Dreamcatcher, making a basket, or jewellery from T-shirt yarn. This is a fun and relaxed day of yarning and gift making with friends and for friends.
*Why not register with a friend and receive 10% off your second booking!

Tuesday 18.12 - Christmas print shop [FULL - go to waitlist]
Discover the craft of mono and relief printmaking to design and make gift tags, cards, gift card sets and a framed art print to hang on your wall. This workshop involves some brain gym as you expand your visual language to think in reverse, positive and negative and back to front. Then fire up the printing press and print as many editions of your print as you can give away this Christmas - the gift that gives to many - a reward for your efforts! 

Wednesday 19.12 - Un • Wrapped
Many tons of wrapping paper contaminated with plastic sticky tape go to landfill every Christmas. Make re-usable gift bags and furoshiki gift wraps that will give again and again with kindness to the earth. In this workshop you will learn how to print on fabric with a silk screen. We will also print and embellish a tote bag or cushion cover inspired by the art of Cat Lee. Participants will take home a printed cushion cover or tote bag as well as some re-usable gift bags and wraps. 

Thursday 20.12 - Maker Christmas {FULL - go to waitlist]
Hammer, saw, spray, paint, construct something to make Christmas creative this year! The Kindling Creative Christmas workshop will be humming as the elves get to work designing and making ornaments, decorations and games from wood, paper and found materials.
