Free Festive Fun

Anybody de-cluttering toy cupboards ahead of Christmas? We want your little plastic toys for our Festive Bauble, Badges & Bears workshop event at Leeds Corn Exchange

It’s free, festive and fun. 16th and 17th December 11-5pm

Come bring your plastic stuff (Lego, little plastic animals, dolls, magnetic letters, bears, cars, minions, Barbies, Kinder eggs, etc) and we’ll turn them into delightful festive trinkets with you/other participants

*Really great quality bigger items we are working out a charity partnership to get them into the hands of children who don’t get much year round
