Craft Tea Party

This weekend, saw the second of My Make Do and Mend Year’s Upcycling workshops! This time at the Craft Tea Party in Bath.

The Craft Tea Party was the brainchild of the lovely Janine, and was run in aid of Oxfam to celebrate International Women’s Day. Oxfam is working towards a world where everyone has enough to eat, and where women especially have the opportunity to earn a decent living.

Here are some pictures from the afternoon:

£375 was raised for Oxfam. The work they do really can be life changing, and this was a fabulous way to spend the afternoon, raise some money for a great cause, and help to raise the profile of International Women’s Day.

A big thankyou to all involved, and especially Janine for all her hard work!
