The ponchos we have made for refugees so far have proved very successful, so we're making more! We hope to make a batch of 600 by the end of February for distribution in Calais and Northern France, so we need your help!

We'll be holding poncho making sessions every day at Cambridge Artworks from Friday 9 to Friday 16 February, starting at 10am except Fridays when they will start at 11am.

Each session is led by an experienced poncho maker, so no previous experience is necessary — family, children and friends are most welcome!

We're aiming for 15 people per session. Please register online if you wish to attend:

If you can please bring the following; sewing machine, extension lead, scissors, unpickers, tailors chalk, tape measure, black or grey thread, pin cushion, food and drink to share.
We'd suggest you label your stuff with your name so you can find it again at the end of the day!

If you are unable to attend a session but have a sewing machine we could borrow, or have any other questions, please email us at [email protected]

We will also be holding a one off poncho making session at Trumpington Pavilion on Monday 19 February from 6.30pm:
If you want to come to this please contact Carol on [email protected]

If you can't make any of the sessions, and you've got a sewing machine, you can always make ponchos at home — get in touch via [email protected] and we'll send you more information.
Only registered users may comment.
Pass a quick registration or authorization.
