Coffee, cake and craft (TEENS EVENT)

Ricoh, Broadgate Tower

On 20th November we held our second Teens Day of the week at the Ricoh offices in Broadgate Tower.

This was a jam-packed afternoon where we made some beautiful handmade, high quality gifts to take home with us. 

We started off learning how to make handmade beads with jeweller Yasmin from Beadeze. By rolling, pressing and shaping polymer clay, we were able to produce our own beads with intricate patterns, which we then took home with us to bake in the oven before threading onto a bracelet. This was quite a rigorous process, however the end result was so worth the time it took to make them!

After a bite to eat, we started to create our personalised shaker frames, filled with embellishments and topped with an inspirational quote. Some of us made these as gifts for loved ones, but some of us made them as a gift to ourselves - they were just too good to give away!

This was such a theraputic, creative afternoon based in fantastic facilities provided by Teens Unite supporters Ricoh. We were even lucky enough to be joined by some of the Ricoh staff, who volunteered their time to lend a hand and chat to us while we made our gifts.
