Surrey Herald/News - - LEISURE -

IT is the sea­son to get crafty at The Light­box in Wok­ing – get in­spi­ra­tion from ex­pert mak­ers and artists, have a go your­self or buy ready made cre­ations in a re­laxed en­vi­ron­ment. To start with, en­joy and get mo­ti­vated with Re­fined, an ex­hi­bi­tion cel­e­brat­ing Sur­rey Guild of Crafts­men’s 21st an­niver­sary. Each of the mak­ers of the Guild co-oper­a­tive was in­vited to pro­duce up to three pieces to showcase their craft for this tour­ing pub­lic ex­hi­bi­tion and 40 re­sponded with some stun­ning de­signs. The Light­box’s Christ­mas shop­ping event will take place on Satur­day De­cem­ber 20, from 5pm to 8pm. There are a lot of rea­sons to take ad­van­tage of this late open­ing evening. You can avoid the masses in the high street and shop in style. You can choose from a se­lec­tion of unique and hand­crafted gift ideas while en­joy­ing free mulled wine and mince pies. There is also the chance to get a last look at the Re­fined ex­hi­bi­tion, where some of the pieces are for sale. Meet the artists and dis­cover what in­spires them and how the pieces for sale have been made. And to top it all, the bar will be open and mu­sic by Sour Kix will pro­vide the per­fect back­drop. Chil­dren can start the new year by get­ting crafty and help­ing the en­vi­ron­ment with some re­cy­cling. A ses­sion called Mes­sen­ger Pi­geons will take place on Fri­day Jan­uary 2 and in­volves turn­ing old Christ­mas cards into a pi­geon car­ry­ing a spe­cial mes­sage. The work­shop in­cludes all ma­te­ri­als and runs from 1.30pm to 4pm. It is suit­able for chil­dren aged four and over ac­com­pa­nied by an adult. Sug­gested do­na­tion £2.
