Greeniversity is contributing to the preparations for the outdoor Harvest meal, by running a session where enthusiastic crafters can have a go at making plaited straw napkin rings for the table. The free workshop will be held on Saturday 22 August, from 1.45pm-3.15pm, at Chauffeurs Cottage PE1 1YX.
The workshop’s napkin rings, along with those made by other volunteers in preparation for the Festival, will be presented as part of the table displays on Sunday 20 September in Peterborough’s historic Cathedral Square.
“We are delighted to have the chance to support a festival that means so much for the city,” explains Greeniversity Development Lead Jennifer Orrell. “The festival will focus on ecological and social sustainability and will bring people together to share skills – something that we are keen to encourage wherever possible in order to build stronger, more sustainable communities.”
Greeniversity is a national green skill share initiative that gives people the opportunity to teach and learn everything from bee-keeping to bike maintenance through free sessions, helping to create sustainable communities for the future. Greeniversity is so valuable because it promotes group learning and encourages community cohesiveness in a fun, informal environment.
All materials will be provided. Don’t miss out – places for this free workshop are limited and booking is essential. To book your place today, visit www.greeniversity.org.uk. To find out more about the Harvest Festival take a look at www.metalculture.com.
