In June 2013 we launched a mission on the crowdfunding site Go Fund Me to raise money to get us to the Shrewsbury Flower Show.
We saw this opportunity as a way to…
Create more visibility about the work of Designs In Mind
Test out new retail products and systems
Build an audience for developing retail work
Generate income to support the on-going work of Designs In Mind
Produce high quality products for a high profile event, providing more opportunities for members of Designs In Mind.
In just 6 weeks we made 14 mosaic stepping stones and 1 mosaic table to take to the event. What was wonderful to watch in this making time was small teams get together to work on a project, with people taking on different roles of the making process- Design, Nibbling, Setting, Cleaning.
