New Year, New You!

With 2018 quickly heading our way, it’s the time of year we all think about what we want to do differently over the next 12 months. Whether it’s signing up to gym memberships or getting around to that hobby you have always wanted to try.

Our specialist upcycling shop, Re-styled by St Oswald’s Hospice, which you’ll find tucked away on the ground floor of Eldon Garden Shopping Centre, has launched their craft and upcycling workshops for 2018, and they are the perfect opportunity to try something new.

Workshops range from decorating and embellishing your own rag wreaths, learning the art of decoupage and many more! Whether you’re a seasoned crafter or just starting out, there is something for everyone.

During each workshop you’ll be able to meet with like-minded crafters, share experiences, all whilst learning new skills. Workshops are hosted by the talented

Re-styled team, who have sought after experience, having appeared on TV hobby channel Hochanda, and can give expert advice to help you improve your up-cycling skills.

As well as a way to learn new skills, meet new people and become part of the #northeastupcyclers community, attending workshops, which start at just £25, are a creative way of fundraising for St Oswald’s, with all profits going towards supporting the work of our Hospice. 


So start the New Year off as you mean to continue by getting your craft on and come along to the workshops where you can become part of a community of creative crafters.

A list of all of the 2018 workshops are listed below. To secure your place and for more information, please call the shop on 0191 230 3184, email re-styled@stoswaldsuk.org, or pop in at Unit 19 Eldon Garden Shopping Centre, NE1 7RA. A deposit of 50% of the workshop cost must be paid in advance – transactions can be made in person or by phone. For free sessions, no deposit is required but spaces must be booked.
