We’re delighted that Jen from ‘My Make Do and Mend Year‘ will be joining us at the Tea Party, running our second upcycling workshop – How To Make An Upycled Memo Board!
We’ll have all the resources you’d need on the day, so no need to bring anything. But there are only 10 places available, so if you want to be sure of a spot, email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a place! All it costs is a donation to Oxfam……. read Jen’s Memo Board ‘How To’ to get inspired!
Stuck for what to give the Mum who has everything? Keen to make something crafty but not sure where to start? Want a gift which is both sustainable & fashionable? We may have just the answer!
We’re incredibly excited that Bath-based textile guru Scrapiana will be running Up-cycled Brooch Making Workshops at the Craft-Tea Party! All the materials and help you will need to make a brooch will be on hand, and in just half an hour you will be amazed at the results. Take a look here! All the materials are upcycled from old scarves / jumpers. A truly unique gift. All it will cost to join in is a £5 donation, which will go directly to Oxfam’s work.
If you would like to take part in a workshop, your place must be booked in advance. Workshops will run at the following times: 2pm / 2.45pm / 3.30pm / 4.15pm. Please email email@example.com stating your name, how many places you wish to book, and your preferred workshop time. We will then email you back with confirmation. NB: This activity can be undertaken by older children, but parents will need to supervise and book a place too.
We look forward to seeing everyone’s creations on the day!!

BBQ? Facepainting you say? and Bargains at a car boot sale? Yes to all 3 – and you can support Oxfam Bath at the same time! We’ll be joining Bath City Farm at their Mini May FunDay on Saturday, which is shaping up to be a great event. And we’re not just having 1 stall. Oh no – we’re having 2!
Stall Number 1 will be raising awareness of GROW, Oxfam’s Food Justice Campaign. This summer, Rio+20, the UN Conference on Sustainable Development, could be a major opportunity to address the injustices that mean 1 in 7 people go to bed hungry. Come and find out more about what Oxfam is calling on the UK government to do at the summit, and plant some free seeds which you can take home and watch GROW this summer!
Stall Number 2 will be asking people to show their support for a strong Arms Trade Treaty. Weapons can be traded more easily than bananas, coffee and dinosaur bones. That’s bonkers! We’ll have more information on how you can be part of changing this through the UN Arms Trade Treaty being agreed this summer.
So come and join us – the summer starts here, honest!!
