Natural Christmas Decoration and Fairy House Making Workshops at Haworth Art Gallery

Haworth Art Gallery are inviting everyone to take part in a fundraising Christmas craft workshop on Saturday 16 December 2023 to support the gallery and local community group, Growing Wild. The day will see attendees take part in Christmas decoration-making session, as well as a Christmas fairy fungi and fair house decoration workshop.

Residents are invited to join the Gallery team and volunteers from Growing Wild to make their very own woodland-themed Christmas decorations, produced using sustainably foraged goods, sourced by the Growing Wild team.

The workshops have been inspired by the activities of the Growing Wild team, including their regular local walks, foraging and fungi forays, with most of the natural resources supplied for the workshops having been gathered locally and responsibly.

The workshops will be led by Kate Mason, creator of Growing Wild, and supported by a team of other volunteers from Growing Wild. The group are a community-led organisation that believe in trying to connect people with each other and nature, providing nature-based conservation activities for the community, including food growing, outdoor recreational activities, bushcraft, and more.

These sessions do not need to be booked in advance and all are welcome to attend, with the crafts being suitable for all ages – simply drop in between 12noon to 3:45pm at a time convenient for you.

The sessions are free to attend but there is a suggested donation of: £10 for large fairy houses, £10 for a small and medium house, £10 for three small houses, £10 for five small toadstools, and £10 for three large mushrooms. Donations and payments will be taken by Haworth Art Gallery and the money raised will be shared equally between Growing Wild Community Allotment and Wildspace, and Haworth Art Gallery.
