4600 Gifts is an invitation to you, your friends and your neighbours to join in welcoming athletes to the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Together, in March and April we will make 4600 hand-embellished gifts, upcycling locally-sourced materials into messages of welcome, made with love in Brum.

Join in one of our 90 minute workshops around Birmingham – to turn a simple blank gift template into a one-off, beautiful object that will be treasured forever by our visitors from the Commonwealth Nations and Territories. Workshops will take place at Moseley Baths, Selfridges, and Cathedral Square – book on Eventbrite.  Or you can host your own group workshop contact Jo Loki at [email protected].

You don’t need any crafting experience or know-how to take part; we’ll provide everything you need to wrap, knot and stitch. Your finished gift and personal message will be presented to a visiting athlete when they arrive for the Games in July.

Your gift will carry a message of welcome from one hand to another, marking a special moment in time for Birmingham. We’d love you to be part of it!
