First Birthday Craftathon for Mind Pembrokeshire


It’s our first birthday this weekend so we’re celebrating with a Craftathon!

It’s been a fantastic year at East Gate Gallery and Shop and we’ve met lots of lovely people at our workshops. So we’re opening up our Potting Shed on Saturday 1st December to celebrate with even more lovely people during our Craftathon in aid of Mind Pembrokeshire. And we’ve added a Christmas theme into the mix.

Come and join in the festive fun between 10am and 4pm. Make your own Christmas card or gift labels or maybe a wooden tree decoration. Have a go at a Lino cut, crochet, knitting or weaving. There’ll also be the chance to paint, weave or make Macramé.

It’s perfect timing to get your handmade Christmas cards and gifts ready to treat your friends and family (and impress them with your creative genius!)

It will cost you just £1.00 per gift idea you make and all the proceeds go to Mind Pembrokeshire, a voluntary group working for a better life for anyone with experience of mental distress. You buy your tokens in the gallery first and then head out the back to our Potting Shed for the fun to begin.

You can also feast on some delicious Christmas stollen, home-made Welsh cakes and scones as well as some GF free goodies and join us for a drink. Again, donations will go to Mind Pembrokeshire.

Hope to see you there! And if you can’t make it, check out our workshop options on our website.
