Clocktower Market – from 10am to 4pm
The workshop was hosted by Katie Farrell who runs the Sewcial Circle. The Sewcial Circle is a crafty gang for people who love to make things. In the whirlwind of everyday life, crafting has often been my haven for inspiration and calm. The Sewcial Circle craft kits are designed to get the whole family crafting. At this drop-in workshop, you’ll have the opportunity to create your own felt clock bauble for free. Ideal for ages 7+.

What is Inventing South Norwood all about?
Celebrating the spirit of invention in South Norwood, this new cultural programme is funded by Historic England High Street Action Zones Programme. Its intention is to support exciting cultural activity and get people to come out and enjoy their historic high streets.
These Invention points are a great chance for people to come and talk to the Stanley Team about the ‘Inventing South Norwood’ programme and learn how to get involved in our volunteer initiatives. We will take photos of all your work for the upcoming Invention Archive.
Daniel Winder, Venue Director, Stanley Arts, said: “South Norwood has a rich and enduring history of invention and creativity. We hope that over the next three years the whole of our local community will come together to celebrate our collective spirit of invention.”
Duncan Wilson, Chief Executive, Historic England, said: “The high street cultural programme is a step change in the way we think about bringing high streets back from the brink. As we start to see these important historic spaces regenerated through building work, it is the community-led cultural work that helps people to enjoy their high street again and also have a say in what the future of their high street might be.”
