WINNER ‘Progress toward circularity’ Marie Claire Sustainability Awards 2023

Art in the Park

In 2019, Yodomo was invited to the Art in the Park Festival in Leamington Spa which saw over 45,000 artists, performers and visitors come together to indulge in creativity.

Thanks to the support of Arts Council England, Yodomo instructors provided free live demonstrations and workshops that gave participants hands-on opportunities to learn new creative skills. 

In the Yodomo tent, inspiration was buzzing as visitors gathered to try their hands at a variety of crafts and techniques. The demos and workshops included modern embroidery, bookbinding, making "Kalinka" Polish pom-poms and charcoal drawing. Each participant was able to take home their new creations along with some new-found creative skills.

We received wonderful feedback from workshop participants, all of whom were enthusiastically involved in the process of making.

One participant said:

"Thank you for the great day we had. The book binding was very successful and our young grandson is thrilled with his notebook. Eva and I loved the pom pom making and planning decorations for her bedroom. Well done for providing such a great creative experience."
