UAL Craft Fair in support of CoolTan Arts


UAL Student Union groups ArtsFems and Arts RAG came together to organise a Craft Fair in aid of CoolTan Arts. On Wednesday 11th of May they hosted an evening of badge making, bracelet making, craftivism (with lots of felt and glitter!), and donut decorating!

We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who contributed towards the donations, and especially to those involved in organising the event! We hope everyone had a great time getting crafty! We hugely appreciate the support. The funds raised will go towards all the artists, participants and volunteers at CoolTan.
