Felt, Flowers & Candle Holders

Over the last few weeks Creative Cafe have been getting crafty with some cute D.I.Y’s. Introducing  quick and easy tea light holders that would be the ideal handmade gift.


The Creative Cafe gang also enjoyed a new addition to our timetable – Textiles! New Independent Arts practitioner Mandy Bangerter brought along a beautiful array of scrap fabrics and taught us all how to make fabric flowers. These could be used as napkin rings or as an embellishment to any item or clothing. Picture a plain tote bag with these lovely additions at either end of the strap.


Finally, the ladies were presented with a wonderful surprise. Previously, a few of the Creative Cafe goers had created their own individual garden scene out of felt during an Art session. Independent Arts Art practitioner Marilyn Bersey has been busy stitching all these scenes together and created the most spectacular wall hanging!


We couldn’t be prouder of the wonderful work our group creates each week, what a talented bunch. If you would like to join the fun we meet every Monday morning 10:00am – 12:00pm at the Newport Methodist Church Hall on Quay Street. Sessions are free with tea, coffee and biscuits provided however, donations are always welcome.

See you there!
