Once everything had settled down though, people soon got stuck into painting the jars they'd brought along, which could be filled with a tea-light when finished to produce a lovely colourful light!
Here's an idea of how busy it was! 62 people in total turned up
Some of our new members concentrating on their designs
Here you can see Karl, one of our only male members! If there are any guys reading, please feel free to come along to a workshop - remember, crafting is not just for girls!
More new members working on their jar designs
It was so busy that we had to use any flat surface we could find as a makeshift table!
A big thank you to these guys - the Bangor Craft and Sewing Society committee - for putting such effort into making tonight a success
We hope you enjoyed the first meeting! Our next workshop will be held on Tuesday 6th October at 7pm in the Student Union, where we will be making dreamcatchers! Please do come along, and feel free to ask if you need help finding the building or have any other questions.
In the meantime, you can keep up with our news via the Facebook page (link in the top navigation bar), or keep an eye out on the blog for an upcoming tutorial on how to make your own jam jar tea-light holder for anyone who missed the session tonight.
Thank you all so much for coming, have a great week and we'll see you next Tuesday!
