LILAC Creative and Crafting Corner

Do you love creativity and craft? Are you coming to the LILAC Conference? While not drop by the ILG stand and have a go at entering our competition for the best attempt to re-create the Media and Information Literacy Alliance (MILA) logo using some form of craft or creative expression – we will have plenty of supplies on the ILG stand such as yarn, coloured foam, pens, threads, glue, stickers. But bring your own supplies for your own project and to share with others. 

  • Perhaps patchwork is your thing?
  • Do you cross stitch?
  • Can you knit or crochet?
  • Are you a song writer or budding artist? 
  • Handy with a paintbrush or clay?
  • Make something from recycled materials

The world is your oyster to be as creative as you like to express the MILA logo in a visual or other expressive form that can be recorded in some way.

We have some resources below to give you ideas – please feel free to add your own resources:
