We want to maximise personalisation so if you have photographs you want to use or specific bedrooms items (storage bag for example) then bring along.
We will be providing all the comic books, magazines, paper, tickets, glue and card materials for you to get started on upcycling your bedroom.
Price = €10

We’ve got a huge a range of yarns, as well as lots and lots of patterns for knitting, crochet and sewing. Our extensive crafts and art section have everything you’ll need for that project you’re working on. If you need inspiration, why not check out the “Craft Projects” section of the store where you’ll find lots of ideas for things to make.
