Make Your Own Christmas: meet the makers (Part 1)

Noel Prickle PressAs with all our events, the spirit of this year’s Make Your Own Christmas Party will be all about the people who participate and share their skills. We talk to two of our makers about why they’re involved, what they’ll be doing on the day and what they’re most looking forward to.

Why did you get involved with the Christmas party and what activity are you doing?

I got involved because I wanted to help run a community event that celebrated making and creating your own Christmas rather than the commercial “buy your own Christmas” idea. I’m bringing along my letterpress and offering the chance for people to hand print a motif or festive saying on their handmade cards.

What are you looking forward to on the day?

The atmosphere – Makerhood events are always filled with such a variety of people and there’s always lots of laughter, chatter and enjoyment. I love being in a creative, sharing environment like this.

Why did you get involved with the Christmas party and what activity are you doing?

I got involved with the Makerhood Christmas party because I had such a great day at the Making Uncovered event in April. It was a brilliant event and I made some great connections. I’ll be making paper snowflakes with anyone who fancies a bit of chilling!

What are you looking forward to on the day?

I’m looking forward to crafting up a storm and making a mountain of flakes with fellow south Londoners!
