Visioning your New Year

Yes! It's a whole new year! As we enter a new cycle, let’s take some time together to vision what we want for ourselves in this new phase. Maybe you’ve already created a list of goals for yourself, or perhaps you’re just getting started and need some inspiration to vision a new year in a strange new reality. Wherever you are, creating a vision board will help remind you of the things you want to do and be as you move forward into 2021. Using simple materials from your recycling bin and collage techniques, we’ll guide you through the process of creating a vision board that will keep you aspirations front and centre, and keep you inspired months down the road. 

Materials: Old magazines or books with lots of pictures, Coloured pens or pencils, Scissors, Glue, Cardboard or cardstock to act as the base.

Letter Writing Workshop

Letter writing is slow communication. Expression that is reflective and can be savoured over and over again by the recipient. It’s not a slap dash response, or a one liner delivered instantaneously over digital networks. A letter is a space to be expressive and reflective, it’s a space that takes some time, both to create, and to read, and most of us are not used to communicating like this! But, Get Crafty is here to get you started with some tips and creative ideas make your letters look great.

Materials: Pen, Paper, Glue, Scissors
