CREATE-on: Craft Catalyst Club

This project is a part of our CREATE-on programme, a programme made in response to the Covid-19 restrictions challenging the way we stay creative.

Project description

As part of the Transported Create-On programme, Making Up Your Street (MUYS) has opened the “Craft Catalyst Club” (CCC).

We want to connect with people in Boston and South Holland, during the lockdown period and encourage people who might be new to creative activity to give it a try.

There are two elements to the project:

Community Craft Postcards

Visit the website link at the bottom of the page and send us your address. Laura and Kathleen from MUYS will send you a free postcard kit with easy to follow instructions and the materials to make a postcard using different techniques.

Send the postcard back to us in the prepaid envelope provided and we will send your postcard to another member of the Craft Catalyst Club. Soon after you will receive your own surprise postcard in the mail from another anonymous Craft Catalyst Club participant.

Prescribed Craft Kits

An example craft kit

We’re very sorry but we have sent out all of the prescribed craft kits! 

You can still sign up for the community postcard. 
Participants signed up via an online form. They answered a few questions about themselves and then Kathleen and Laura hand picked a craft kit with their interests in mind and send it straight to your home.

 

No internet access? Not a problem! You can take part in this project completely offline. If you know anyone who would like to participate in either of the projects who does not have access to the internet, there is a phone number for you to share with them and they can text message Laura and Kathleen to find out more.
