Rats that craft launch day!

I am so excited to announce that the first session on ‘Rats who craft’ hosted by The Sea Cat
is happening today with our second group following on Saturday!
‘Rats who craft’ is a group for people struggling with anxiety, depression and chronic pain, this is something close to The Sea Cat’s heart. She has struggled with chronic pain and PTSD for a while now and has been using her crafts to manage the pain and anxiety, she is finally able to start sharing this with a small, socially distanced group. She is hoping for the group to grow in future when restrictions allow with the potential of doing workshops taught by other members of the SCRAP YARD RATS.
The group is a lgbtq+ safe space, a space where it’s safe to communicate about our problems, or just get together and do something positive.
I’ll try and get some photos and videos to post later!

The SCRAP YARD RATS Online Christmas Market

As we aren’t all able to go and enjoy Christmas markets this holiday season the SCRAP YARD RATS collective have put together a wonderful Online market here on Facebook. The market will be held over the weekend of the 4th-6th December.
The SCRAP YARD RATS are a collective of artists working in many different mediums, all of which use scrap and recycled materials in their work.
Remember folks shop small this year, help out the creatives that are struggling to do what they do in these times. Not only will you be helping our fantastic artists by shopping in out online market but you will also be helping the environment! Christmas creates so much waste worldwide, this year make the decision to SHOP UPCYCLED! Don’t give Christmas to Amazon!
Links to each item will be posted along side photos by different artists, follow the links to browse shops and purchase pieces.

The Sea Cat’s Online Christmas Market

As I am unable to attend any Christmas markets this year due to Covid restrictions I will be holding an online market on Facebook for everyone to attend safely from their own homes.
Over this time I will be posting all of my stock to the page for you to browse with some exclusive deals for you to enjoy.
All of the pieces are available in my ETSY shop but if you would like a bespoke piece made specially please send me a message through here, Facebook, Instagram or ETSY.
Let’s not let Amazon have Christmas, shop small this year and help out the creatives in these odd times.
