At Unravel and Unwind we are blessed with a wealth of experienced artists and crafters as well as a growing number of those making their first steps into creating for both hobby and sale.
Many of our volunteers and regulars create fantastic things that you could own, we sell some of these items through our workshop but many have their own websites and store-fronts; today we’re going help you find out where to buy from and support these wonderful people.
Sue is one of our regular volunteers and a service user, she’s often engaged in our workshops and having fun creating.
Her specialty though, is decopatch, breathing new life into a wide variety of quality objects using materials with history. Materials used in her process can range from vintage music sheets to old vinyl records and everything created through this process has a unique look and feel to it.
While Sue doesn’t currently have an online store she will be exhibiting on the 16th and 17th of April at the Grain Storestudios as well as selling her work at the Teynham market on the first Saturday of every month.
Bernice is a wonderful lady that both volunteers at Unravel & Unwind as well as takes part in range of activities that we offer.
