To celebrate summer (and the start of another expected heatwave) Park Mall & Elwick Place have decided to put on a garden party for you! There are lots of things to do such as FREE face painting, FREE crafts, FREE cups of tea, FREE seeds and even a makers market. All happening on Sat 24th Aug!
Over in Park Mall we have from 10am – 2pm.
Free face painting. Floral and garden themed faces for all! Find this at the entrance to Park Mall.
FREE CRAFT – Make your own Bee & B. A recycled craft that can be decorated and hung in your garden as a little home for the bugs and bees. Find this activity outside Made in Ashford.
FREE CRAFT – Bird Feeders. These loopy hoopy bird feeders are easy to make and can be bent into all kinds of shapes, we liked these heart shapes best though! Pop these into your garden for the birds. Find this activity outside Made in Ashford.
FREE CRAFT – make pressed flower book marks with Emporia.
FREE ECO BRICKING DROP IN WORKSHOP with Bare Bazaar – learn how to make good quality eco bricks and help us make some too. We need your help to make enough Eco bricks to create something for Park Mall out of plastic waste that may have otherwise gone to landfill. Find this event in Kiosk 2 (the old Timeless shop opposite the Record store, near Wilko).
FREE seeds being given out.
Elwick Place Garden Part Events 11am – 3pm
Made in Ashford presents their first Makers Market. This will be held in Elwick Piazza and is a showcase of local talent from the Made in Ashford shop in Park Mall and beyond. We have a wonderful and varied array of handmade, locally designed and produced items for you to browse and buy (we hope)!
SPREAD YOUR WINGS IN ASHFORD PHOTO OP – The talented gracefully boho who has already had successes with her local mural work on the Mecca bingo Hall and at Create festival has created a unique set of wings for the garden party where you can have your photo taken. Below is a progress shot and we are very excited to see it.
FREE SPREAD YOUR WINGS CRAFT – make your own recycled wings to take home with you and wear them your own way!
FREE TEA – yes we will be supplying you with a free cuppa of Pluckley Tea. There will be a couple of cute little tables decked out for our garden party that you can sit at and have a drink or you may wish to browse our market while enjoying your beverage.
and of course it wouldn’t be an event we were involved in if it didn’t have…
FREE COLOURING SHEETS!
Oh my gosh that is so much stuff. It has exhausted me just writing about it. You had better be there!
