This weekend, make your own boob candle holder in an online pottery workshop in aid of breast cancer awareness
The May bank holiday weekend is almost upon us, meaning that we’re busy planning what we’ll be doing to keep us entertained and this boob candle holder workshop is top of our list..
Fancy making a homemade boob candle holder? Quirky, colourful and completely unique, you’ll be able to craft your own with thanks to Drink & Draw who has planned an online workshop that will teach us all how to do just that.
We’ve had our eye on new candle holders and plant pots for quite some time, an obsession that stemmed from discovering Emma Low and her wonderfully misshapen creations. The artist behind the Pot Yer Tits Away Luv account, she’s created a hugely successful online business off the back of her Insta-viral artwork. A one-woman show, her products aim to normalise and celebrate real bodies – and they’re so popular that getting your hands on one is a near-impossible feat. Believe me, I’ve tried (on many an occasion). I may have to wait a while until I finally manage to commission an Emma Low original, but this Drink & Draw event will definitely keep me busy in the meantime – a happy medium between the two, and all in aid of a very worthy cause.
Doubling as a fundraiser for Arc Cancer Support, organisers hope that the event will also help to promote breast cancer awareness. Explaining a little bit about the idea, a post over on their Instagram account states, “we want these virtual events to promote breast cancer awareness, by creating whatever type of boobs you want, as each to their own. We are hoping to reach as many people as possible to promote this cause.”
Running two different sessions – one on Saturday and one on Sunday – tickets for the event are donation-based, so you decide how much to give. Pottery kits are sold separately and come in a range of sizes, with prices starting at €25 for a basic one-person box. You can find out more over on the Drink & Draw website here.
€2 from every pottery kit sold along with 50% of all ticket donations will go to helping Arc Cancer Support reach their €12,000 fundraising goal. Already more than halfway there, every little bit helps and even a couple of euros will make all the difference.
