Sustainable Living Festival – what a great weekend!

21 Feb

Thank you to all of those involved in making the Sustainable Living Festival such a great weekend!

Ladies hard at work

An especially large thank you to the Brotherhood of St Laurence for the broken jewellery they donated to The Treasury, as well as the lovely SLF volunteers who not only donated their old jewellery, but also gave their time and energy. The workshops were packed full of ladies wanting to learn more about how they can be fashionably more sustainable and some gorgeous works of art were made in the process.

The Treasury’s monthly workshop is on this Saturday – there are still a couple of spaces left so make a booking here if you’d like to join us.

Also of great success was the Fix It! workshops presented in the Shed at SLF on Sunday. The idea behind this venture is that anyone can host a Fix It! event in their community – check out their Face Book page for more details and to get in touch with them about planning and resources. Again I have to mention how wonderful the Brotherhood of St Laurence are for donating a massive pile of broken lamps to work on throughout the day – many people went away with gorgeous new lamps on the day and there’s still left overs for the next Fix It! event.
