Christmas Wreath Challenge Results

Our Chief Officer Tom Waring stepped in at the last minute to judge the contest because, sadly, Anneliese Emmans Dean was unwell (we’re sending her our best wishes). He had a tough job – all wreaths used some upcycled materials and all are lovely! In the end he settled on the “little corkers choir wreath” made by the Eco-Crafters Club member Anne. The wreath is not only fully upcycled but can also be turned into tree decorations, or simply used again next year with another bit of ivy. Anne won a £20 craft shop vouchers so we look forward to seeing more of her creations.

Anne's winning wreath: made of corks, beads from broken jewellery and scraps of material, plus ivy. The wreath can easily convert to make 8 decorations to hang on a Christmas tree.

We had 17 entries into the challenge and they are now all available to buy from the Environment Centre. Check them out in the gallery below or pop round to have a look! Craft sales help cover the club’s costs, which recently received a welcome boost from the Hungate Community Fund administered by the Two Ridings Community Foundation. There are several membership places available in the club so if you fancy some crafts & friendly natter on Wednesday afternoons, get in touch.
