Preparing for the Annual Advent Fair

A busy week preparing for our advent fair.

This week, learners and residents have been busy putting the finishing touches to their arts and craft items in readiness for sale at our annual Advent Fair. 

Some have been packaging their products like Gilly, who has been busy putting bath bombs and soaps into special Christmas gift bags for the 'Bubble and Fizz' team.

Gwilym, has been glueing and nailing the legs on the wooden reindeer that he has made in woodwork, and Ellie, has been making special labels to go with the felt items that she has stitched together.

Ben, and Daniel, have been busy making Christmas cards whilst Martin, has  been pouring wax into moulds to make festive candles and then he brushes gold glitter onto them. They look fabulous!

Meanwhile, in mosaics, Jared has been making coasters and Sam has made a Christmas tree picture. There have also been lots of textiles being made, and Gruffydd, is especially keen to show you all the weaving he has been doing.

And, down in the land group they have been beavering away making among other things, wreaths, cards, mince pies, shortbreads and salt dough decorations.

They are all looking forward to showing everyone what they have been making and selling as much as they can.

Phew! what a week! Well done everyone, you are all awesome!
