Unfortunately following the  governments instructions for all of us  to stay at home, we have had to close our studio for the time  being. If  you have booked onto one of our Easter workshops, we have sent you an email... if you have have booked a party for the month of March we have also sent you an email. We will be using our time to plan for future exciting workshops and events. Keep up to date by checking  our website over the coming weeks. You can follow us on facebook and instragram too! We are hoping to upload some crafty activities you can do with your children at home. Watch this space.


Thank you for your supporting emails. We will be back crafting again with you soon. 

Be safe and if you can, keep creative at home.

Make a Display Board

 

Come and make your very own display board. Choose from a selection of colours to create an acrylic wash. Next, design your board either by  freehand or choose from a large selection of acetate stencils. A string of fairy lights and cute pegs will complete your look. Take a look at other examples in our gallery! No two boards are ever the same.

NEW for 2020


Let's decorate for an Easter celebration!

Nothing looks more beautiful than handmade bunting made by your own hands!

Come and make a string of hessian bunting.

THIS IS A NO SEW CRAFT!!

First cut out your hessian triangle shapes, then choose your fabric and felt from a large selection. We have templates for you to use to create your Easter design or you can make your own.

Next cut out your shapes, add details, then finally using special webbing, iron your design onto the triangles to fix them into place. The last thing is to string them all together. Enjoy!

NEW for 2020


Handmade Easter trees have become more popular as each year turns.

So...come and make yours with us in our studio.


Choose a hand sprayed tin,  (several colours available). Decorate your tin with ribbons and other Easter embellishments, before securing the oasis and displaying your hand sprayed natural twigs.

Next, spend a few 'mindfulness' hours making sequined hanging Easter eggs and felt decorations to display on your tree.

Your tree would look stunning displayed in an entrance hall or as a feature in your most loved room at home.

There's nothing more enjoyable than receiving a handmade gift from your child. 


We are running child only craft sessions for your child to create something magical ready for Mother's day. They will first choose a ceramic pot to paint with acrylic paints, next they will make some beautiful tissue paper flowers with a special clay surprise bloom! Finally, a handmade card, hand decorated gift bag and tag will complement their gift for their special grown up on Mother's day.
