As some of you may have noticed already we are fast approaching Christmas and as we head down hill into the festive period, gathering speed and shiny baubles as we go, we’ve decided to invite fellow crafters to come and spend some time with us making Christmasy inspired creations.
Our first session takes place on Saturday 29th November 2014 as we invite you to come and make some felt Christmas tree decorations. Join Lotte Jamieson as she talks you through some delightfully simple festive themed shapes. Choose from six, different designs including hearts, angels, baubles, mini Christmas trees, Christmas puddings and penguins and make three decorations of your own to take home and adorn your tree with. Even better, the class is suitable older children, so if you have a crafty kid at home who wants to get handy with festive decorations, this could be the perfect class for them. The Christmas Felt Decorations workshop takes place from 2pm – 4pm, is suitable for anyone aged eight and up, and costs £12.00 per person.
More Christmas crafty fun comes our way with the Christmas bunting workshop on Saturday 6th December 2014. Spend the afternoon with Clair as she instructs you in making some simple but effective bunting, perfect for stringing up over the fireplace or round mirrors, or anywhere you think you need some gorgeous fabric decoration. Choose from our fantastic range of Christmas fabrics, with lots of colour and patterns available to turn into your very own creation. The Christmas bunting class takes place from 2pm – 4pm, is suitable for anyone aged eight and up, and costs £15.00 per person.
Our final workshop takes place on Saturday 13th December 2014 and gives you the chance to make a stocking or decorated sack ready for Father Christmas to fill up with goodies on the 24th. Choose your design and personalise it with embroider or applique names – perfect for making for little people just in time for the big day. Or if you fancy keeping it all for yourself, you can decorate your stocking or your sack with pictures, symbols or whatever you like. The Christmas stocking and Santa sack workshop takes place from 2pm – 4pm, is suitable for anyone aged eight and up, and costs £20.00 per person.
And as it’s the season to be jolly, we’ll be getting in the mood with mince pies and plenty of festive cheer, and possibly a glass of something hot and spiced to keep you warm. So if getting crafty and festive at the same time tickles your fancy, give us a ring or pop into the shop and book yourself a place on one of our Christmas specials.
