Who knew snowmen could be cuddly??
Check out this fab doorstop made by one of our long-standing members of Darnley Crafters! Isn’t he fab?!

And what’s even nicer, is that this wee guy and more of his doorstop snowmen pals will be helping raise money for a charity close to our hearts! http://www.thenicolerichfoundation.org.uk/our-story/

19/01/20 Cranes for Claire

First art class of 2020 and we were all thinking of our hopes and wishes for the year ahead. We had a bash at making cranes to support Claire, a little girl in Canada who suffers from Batten Disease. Her mum is hoping for people from all over the world to help them reach their goal of creating 1000 cranes whilst raising awareness for Batten disease. All you need to do is fold a crane, make a wish, take a pic and hashag it. #cranesforclaire

Why Cranes?
The origami crane has symbolized hope in challenging times for many Asian cultures. For many of us, there have been times we feel helpless when those around us are in pain and suffering...especially when they are children. The origami crane is a way to channel your hopes, wishes and prayers into a tangible item and with its positive energy provide comfort, hope, and support to those that need it. There is a myth that if one (community) can fold 1000 cranes, a wish is granted. Our wish is to raise global awareness for Batten Disease but more importantly, give back spirit and strength to all those suffering. Join us and fold a crane today! Post your crane(s) on Instagram or Facebook and tag it to #cranesforclaire.

(Lots of crane tutorials on YouTube! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTY-nGYYq_c)
