Crazy For Vintage ran a three-week wedding styling arts and craft workshops, followed by a public showcase at the Artworks Elephant in Elephant & Castle. In the first week the audience was introduced to Crazy For Vintage, learned about mood boards and how to be more creative with research on individual projects. The second week introduced the DIY aspect of the Crazy For Vintage, where participants had the opportunity to spray paint bottles, jars and make unique seating plan ideas..
The third week saw the showcase event at Artworks. Participants learnt how to do a rustic theme wedding setup, showing their work in the showcase.
Participants of the workshops left feeling more confident about their work and embracing their newly found skills. The workshop also helped individuals build portfolios, network and share their work with others. It was good exposure for creative young people, especially those interested in weddings, arts, design and DIY projects.
Sandra went on to participate in the SOLO Arts & Crafts fair on the 9th July 2016. She was able to take two young people from the workshop to the fair and has since brought on another intern from the workshop to assist with a client’s wedding which hosted 200 guests.
