Yesterday with the rest of Manchester Craft Mafia we held our Christmas fair at The Whitworth Art Gallery . A big thank you to everyone that made the effort to fight though the snow and come and see us. I also worked with fellow Craft Mafia member Debbie Greenaway to run one of the Whitworth's Crafternoon. An monthly craft workshop for adults. Debbie was creating lovely sparkly baubles and I was teaching simple origami techniques to make decorations and gift boxes. I was a great way to spend a perfect Saturday
