Stoke Bridge Workshops raise money for Comic Relief through Lampshade-making course

POSTED ON: 19/03/2019

We spoke to Miranda and Danielle at Stoke Bridge Workshops about their unique way to learn a newskill and raise money for charity.

"We started Stoke Bridge Workshops to benefit our local community; offering classes designed to give all of those who attend a good grounding in a real-life skill that they can then take with them and use. 

"Our first workshop left the 'apprentice' upholsters full of praise at the way in which Victoria from Lady Norfolk & Lord Rust imparted her knowledge, as well as arming attendees full of information on where to buy tools and supplies. Each and every one of those who attended is now able to traditionally paint and upholster a chair themselves.

"Friday was Comic Relief's Red Nose Day and, as we like to keep an ear out and our eyes open for things happening in and around our area, we listened to local charity Anglia Care Trust on BBC Radio Suffolk yesterday morning - they were talking about funds they'd received from Comic Relief to provide money advice to victims of Domestic abuse. Listen to the interview here:

Both of the above things got us thinking about how we'd like to use our workshops to benefit local charities - keep watching and reading our posts for news on how we're going to be donating a percentage of each workshop's fee to a charity in our community.

"To kick off our charitable giving, we'll begin with our Lampshade Making Workshop - WE'RE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT WE'VE REDUCED THE PRICE  to £50 for our 4-hour workshop (we'll contact those who've already booked on), giving a percentage of this workshop to Comic Relief - here’s the link to book: https://www.stokebridgeworksho... - don’t delay as spaces are limited on purpose to give you all the attention you need to learn a new skill for life! We look forward to seeing you there.
