Host a summer Crafternoon for Mind*


Ready for a sunny crafternoon? Plan an afternoon of crafting for cause and help raise funds for Mind. Take a look at these three projects you could make when you host a Mind Crafternoon workshop.

Do you and your creative pals fancy getting together for an afternoon of making? Host a crafternoon and help raise vital funds for Mind, the charity that provides help and support for people who experience a mental health problem.

You don’t have to be an expert crafter; you can do your own thing or make one of these NEW summer craft projects. Whether it’s with the kids on the weekend, over lunch with your colleagues, or an evening with friends, hosting a Mind Crafternoon is all about having fun, getting crafty and helping Mind make sure no one has to face a mental health problem alone.

Take a look at these Mind Crafternoon project ideas:

1. Bee Mindful felt bee sewing pattern

Stitch and stuff a felt bee at your crafternoon as a little reminder to ‘Bee Mindful’. Make a few and string them up in the window or gift a felty friend to a member of your hive. Get your templates to make the felt bee here.


2. DIY paper lantern chain

Get ready for summer evenings outside with a garland of paper lanterns. All you need is paper and milk bottle caps to make it – and it’s easy enough for little hands to craft, too! Watch the video to see how it’s made and get your templates in the Mind Crafternoon pack today.

3. Embroidered notebook cover

Going away this summer? Craft yourself a cute geometric journal for your travels and take not of everything you’re enjoying.

Sign up for a Mind Crafternoon pack today for access to all these templates, plus all the info you need to hold a fabulous Crafternoon for Mind this summer. Share your creations on social media using #Crafternoon and follow Mind on Instagram and Twitter.

The funds you raise from hosting Crafternoons are making a real difference. They help Mind provide support to those who need it through their Infoline, online community Elefriends or through various campaigns for better mental health services.
