We’re looking forward to our first ever event at The Children’s Wood this weekend. One of our very favourite places in Glasgow, and something of a hidden gem, this square plot of land in the North Kelvin area of Glasgow is like nowhere else in the city. The best way we can describe it is as something like a wild park – although it’s carefully looked after by a team of dedicated volunteers. There’s woodland, a meadow, allotments, lots of cool shady trees, all kinds of urban wildlife and plenty of room to simply run, sit or be at peace in nature.
Invited by our friends in the Glasgow Etsy Team, we will be taking a stall in the handmade and vintage section of the event – although just try and keep us away from the cakes – where you can see samples from our first collection of t-shirts in person. For the little ones, we have a competition to design a t-shirt, you can make your own badges, and we’ll have a few of our own badges, cakes and colouring sheets available to buy. We’ll be taking pre-orders for delivery of t-shirts and colouring books at the start of December, and you can sign up to our newsletter (if you haven’t already!) so you can be on top of all the latest Mimi & Will news.
But it’s not all about us – there’ll be storytelling with a foodie theme, a mud kitchen, biscuit decorating, local artisan and independent food producers and did we mention the cake? Find out more at the Children’s Wood event page on Facebook – or turn up and be very pleasantly surprised.
