Be an Angel This Christmas

Trove Christmas Charity Fundraiser

A Colourful Journey

 

Women of SammunatWhile Trove is all about supporting the local community and local makers, we also strongly believe in supporting those with fewer opportunities, especially at Christmas. This December, Trove has chosen to support the wonderful initiative – A Colourful Journey – set up by local Polymer Clay Artist Wendy Moore. This program raises money to assist abused women in Nepal with housing, legal assistance and training. Trove is participating through the sale of these gorgeous Christmas angels, all handmade by women in Sammunat, Nepal. 100% of the money raised goes directly to the charity.

Wendy started the initiative while living in Nepal and now travels back several times a year to contribute to the project. She taught the women the art of Polymer Clay bead and jewellery making as well as the techniques used to make the angels. Wendy also runs these courses for us here in Canberra, and has involved many other Canberra makers in sharing their skills, including our own Cindy from The World Rocks, Janice from Stonecrest  Creations and Lex from Sculptural Emanations.

The angels will be on sale at Trove, Level 1, Garema Place, 70 Bunda Street, Canberra throughout the month of December. Stocks are limited so come in quick and support this great cause.
