Crafting For Water Aid

When I first moved to France I was on the lookout for crafting groups or associations to join and I came across the 'Le Bouton Rouge' based here in South West France. As well as organising a yearly market for creatives wishing to sell their makes, they also organise charity art projects which this year I chose to take part in. 'Drop by Drop' is a project where participants were asked to create a small work of art based around the theme of water. This could be anything from rain, fish, boats or umbrellas. Any materials or techniques could be used but the finished piece had to measure 12x12cms. The pieces will soon be put on sale in an exhibition, made into cards, and all the money raised will be donated to Water Aid.

Above is what I chose to make. I love working with the bright colours of felt. A striking piece can be produced with simply a little cutting, sticking, and in this case a little sewing of buttons. I can't wait to see all the finished pieces together in an exhibition and to buy my own work as a card. I hope my work sells as it will be good to know that all the money raised will go to a good cause.

What do you think? Have you ever crafted for a charity project?
