We’ve updated the MYO Magazine blog!

Read all about the MYO Launch party where another popular activity was mask making!  We brought along the basic cardboard base cut with eyes and a nose and let the people loose on them…the results were fantastic! Read all about it here.

MYO Launch Party

30 May 2017

I hope everyone had great bank holiday weekend and enjoyed the glorious sunshine. On Saturday we hosted the launch party for my new magazine MYO. Wow! What a great turn out. Lots of creative minds (little and large) attended our afternoon of creativity at Protein Studios in Shoreditch, London.

I can’t wait to share pics of everyone’s handmade masks, badges, animal cupcakes, necklaces and selfies with our knitted creatures. If you were at our launch party, join our competition. Please share your pics using hashtag #myocreate and our favourite pic will receive a prize of £100 gift voucher to spend at www.donnawilson.com

We’ll be sharing our own pics of the day over the next couple of days. We’ll have coverage of the creative workshops and of course, the brilliant puppet show “Goose The Bear”.
