Create beautiful paper hanging and free standing decorations

Join us from 11am to 1pm at Derby Adoption Centre for a morning of Christmas creativity led by artist and maker, Liz Wellby.

Liz will teach you how to create beautiful paper hanging and free standing decorations to display in your home or on your Christmas table; impress your friends and family with lovely handcrafted gifts, or maybe just be a little selfish and keep them for yourself. 

You will have a choice of designs to make, including a cat which Liz has developed specially for Cats Protection. Rest assured that each design has been tested by Bert, Liz’s cat, and has survived the paw-test!

All craft materials will be provided as part of the ticket price, however you may wish to personalise your designs and bring along old children’s annuals or hardback books to up-cycle.

Spaces are limited so get your paws on a ticket today and help raise much-needed funds for Cats Protection this Christmas.
