Christmas crafting is in full swing at our (work)shop Spacecraft… With the help of some excellent tuition from printmaking staff at West Notts College we’ve designed and produced some rather excellent linocut Christmas cards. they proved to be really popular on our stall at a recent craft fayre and were going like hot cakes! If you’re local (or even if you’re not!) why not pop in to Spacecraft and pick some up? Your family and friends will love you for it, and you may even see some other handmade crafts that will make perfect presents..!
A group of Pelham Road clients have been getting crafty!
Led by an outside craft expert, Betty, clients have been creating origami flowers, with pipe cleaners used for stems.
As you can see, the final creations were bright and colourful! One client, Adrian, said it was great fun; he was really proud and pleased with his creation.
Out thanks to Betty for taking the session.

At Mansfield Woodhouse our clients have been really hard at work creating some hand-crafted items that have been auctioned off. We raised a brilliant £105 on some handmade dog beds alone.
These beds will make wonderful and snug places for a pooch to pop themselves down on for Christmas Day!
Our clients made some other wonderful items such as cards and rustic door hangings – but it must be said that the dog beds were the real highlight!
The funds raised will go into helping out at our Mansfield Woodhouse site – for transport and resources – and will certainly come in handy.
Daisy, one of our Support Workers at Mansfield Woodhouse, said “It was a really great thing to do and we’re chuffed it raised so much”.
Thank you to everyone who bid. Whether you were successful or not we’re grateful you took the time to bid on the items we made.
