Oxfam Kingston has been home to some very crafty workshops for the past few months, led by the team at Think Make Do.

After a little summer break - the team are back to bring you some more exciting workshops.

Nicole & Rhian of Think Make Do will be taking people through a range of experimental textile processes that will be used to upcycle the clothing at Oxfam Kingston.

You can catch the classes on the first Thursday of every month, 7pm-9pm, at the Oxfam shop in Kingston. Get creative; learn a new skill and all at the same time as giving to Oxfam. You'll be able to learn how to print, knit and stitch. All abilities are welcome.

As a teaser the ladies have prepared a video about how to finger knit. You can watch this easy tutorial below:
