Free Workshop for Unpaid Carers with I Love Nature

January 16, 2019 @ 10:00 am - January 19, 2019 @ 3:00 pm


Free Workshop for Unpaid Carers with I Love Nature on Weds 16th January from 10 am- 3 pm

Edible Wreath and Card Making workshop

Amanda from I Love Nature is hosting a free workshop with Claire from Wild by Design for Unpaid Carers that live in Cornwall, kindly funded by the Cornwall Rural Community Charity.

Come along and have a break from your caring role and enjoy a day crafting and meeting others. Lunch provided by the Junk Food Project and fruit from The Growing Project Pensilva.

To create your edible wreath, you will use locally produced willow to make a willow circlet, then adorn it with herbs, foraged goodies, chillies and luxury trimmings. Designed to dry on your kitchen wall, it will last for months and be a tasty addition to your cooking.

After a hot lunch we will enjoy a short stroll around the site and forage for plant materials for our next craft: Making natural seasonal cards using the ancient art of Hapa Zome (plant-bashing).
Teas, coffee, snacks and lunch included.

CRCC Eligibility criteria:
• You must live in Cornwall.
• You must be an unpaid, informal carer.
(You are still eligible if you are in receipt of a carers allowance)
• Activities must enable carers to take a break from their caring role, therefore the grant cannot pay for the supported person(s) to attend the same activity or event.

There are 10 spaces available. Please email amanda@ilovenature.org.uk or send message through Facebook to book your space.
