Getting Crafty at Kaim Co-op

Thursday the 9th of November saw Christmas come early to RGU, with Kaim Co-op getting into the festive spirit with a workshop hosted by Kim Norrie.

With the sounds of such winter classics as East 17's "Stay Another Day", Pogues "Fairytale of New York", and the smooth tones of Frank Sinatra setting the scene, Kim and a group of keen beans donned their elf hats and got a' craftin'. 

With Christmas bringing the ever increasing tide of consumerism and consumption, GoGreen looked to buck this trend and inspire participants to make something a little more unique, utilising materials donated to the Revolve swapshop. To this end, the group got busy making a variety of Christmas Tree decoration, bunting and advent calendars. 

If you think that getting creative with textiles and materials is far too complicated for your novice sewing skills, then these could be the perfect projects to allay those fears, as for some of them there were no-needles in sight! Our workshops are open to, free, and we like to think fun as well. What's more, if you already a quite the crafter, come down to have your pick of materials from our exptensive collection of yarn, scrap fabric and more.

Kaim Co-op is open Mon and Tues 12-3pm, Wednesday 10-1pm, and Thurs and Fri 1-4pm in Kaim Cottage, Garthdee campus, just next to the Business School.
