Elin Manon was established in 2018 in South Wales to provide circular, artisan clothing with character. Providing high quality accessories and hand framed knitwear, her designs are imbued with nostalgia, Welsh heritage and sumptuous textiles. Proving that eclectic style and sustainability do go hand in hand. She does things differently opting for small collections in limited batches, creating value in each piece made.

Nestled between the celebrations of St Dwynwen's Day (Welsh Valentines) and the universal day of love on February 14th, embark on a creative journey into the realm of sustainable fashion at Mission Gallery in Swansea. Join Elin Manon, the designer and heart behind, for a hands-on experience in crafting fingerless mittens inspired by the timeless traditions of St Dwynwen and Valentine's Day.

Workshop Highlights:

Crafted using ethically sourced Merino wool, you will have the opportunity to create your very own pair of bespoke fingerless mittens. Elin will unveil a custom design inspired by love spoons and St Dwynwen, infusing unique elements that narrate tales of Welsh heritage and love, be it romantic, platonic, or self-love. You will be able to personalize your mittens with up to four colours, reflecting your individual style and preferences.

Elin will personally guide you through the entire process, imparting the art of crafting gloves from start to finish.

Don't miss this exclusive opportunity to not only fashion a beautiful and meaningful accessory but also to immerse yourself in the world of sustainable craftsmanship with Elin Manon. Secure your spot now for a day of creativity and connection.
