from 11am-3 pm

Please register at the event if you would like to join,we'll send out the address one day before the meeting:


looking forward to it!

I'll be a good example and post my material list and some suggestions. ;-)

For Tetra Package purses you'll need:

-an empty Tetra Pack (washed, milkpackages sometimes still smell a bit, I personally prefer juice packages)
- scissors or stanley knife
- velcro (selbstkelbender Klettverschluss,you can get it in sewing shops, I am not sure if I still have a bit at home; there is also a version without velcro with just putting the lid into the purse)
there is also a version where you staple it together,so a stapler would be practical too. (I'll bring one if I can find it)

If we drink a lot of wine (or bring corcs we have collected) we could make a coaster to put under hot pots/kettles or this: http://www.weupcycle.com/tag-228-korkenpinwand/ (but for this we'd need to drink a loooot,hehe)

If you have old CDs lying around,you could make christmas decoration out of it: http://www.weupcycle.com/tag-224-cd-stucke/

Also we could fold small boxes out of paper or make envelopes (for example out of an old calender or flyers)
