On Thursday 17 November 2022 Connaught Village celebrates the beginning of the Christmas season with an afternoon of complimentary sustainable craft workshops, live music performances, in-store promotions, and a chance to meet and pose for a photo with husky dogs, aptly named Santa Paws.
The Tree of Love, Joy and Hope will have a new yuletide makeover with a well-known message ‘All I want for Christmas is…’, which will illuminate the streets and become the ideal Insta-moment for the family Christmas card.
Pupils from Connaught House School Choir will kick-start the afternoon of celebrations with an open-air performance of classic Christmas carols mixed with a few modern hits to get everyone into the festive spirit.
On Kendal Street, you are invited to meet and pose for a photo with Santa Paws, London’s very own husky claus. A Pawtrait illustrator will be drawing Pawtraits – a chance for you to have an illustration drawn with your dog or simply of yourself! Throughout the afternoon, and into the early evening, there will also be a series of complimentary sustainable Christmas workshops including snow globe making and pine cone decorating.
5.30-6.30pm Snow Globe Making
Open to all levels and abilities, the Snow Globe Making workshop will give you the chance to get creative and produce your own festive snow globe designs. Get stuck in and fill your jars with festive objects and biodegradable glitter to make your own Winter Wonderland snow globe.
The Snow Globe Making workshop is taking place from 5.30-6.30pm on Thursday 17 November 2022. Please register your interest here. Those successful in securing a spot on the workshop will be contacted via email.
6.30-7.30pm Pine Cone Decoration Making
Pine Cone decoration making is the perfect workshop to get into the festive mood. There will be lots of coloured material offcuts, ends of ribbon, and naturally sourced pine cones and sticks to choose from. Attendees can make up to six decorations over the course of the session. This workshop welcomes complete beginners and kids as well as fully fledged craft experts.
The Pine Cone decoration making workshop is taking place from 6.30-7.30pm on Thursday 17 November 2022. Please register your interest here. Those successful in securing a spot on the workshop will be contacted via email.
