full-day courses

My workshops are fun, very socialable and easy. These classes are all based on a full-day workshop. Registration, unless otherwise advised, is at 09:30 to start for 10:00. These classes will finished at approximately 16:00. All the classes on the full-day course are ‘three buttons’ on my difficulty rating.

Victorian Découpage

I adore crafting in this medium. I picked up the coffee table in the photograph above for a couple of coppers and turned it into a real statment piece. You will get the opportunity to work on your own furnitire once you have mastered the technique. With this in mind, it’s best to have a think about what you want to work on in the class as you’ll have to bring it with you. I’d advise against the 16 seater dinig- table!!! Workshop includes: Full tutoring All materials Refreshments (bring your own lunch) Price: £99 pp (alternatively, get a group together for your own private class. min 6)

Chalk Painting what’s not to

like?

It’s all the fashion and it’s an absolute miracle in this days whenm most of us are strapped for cash. Turn your drap old bits of furtniture, plastic, laminate...into delightful ‘wanted’ pieces. Just like with the Découpage course, you’ll be bringing your own piece to work on. Not alone will you be tutored in the technique of chalk-painting but will also be shown how to make your own workable and very affordable chalk paint. Workshop includes: Full tutoring All materials Refreshments (bring your own lunch) Price: £99 pp (alternatively, get a group together for your own private class. min 6)

Felting Feltmaking and felt-flower creation

Yes, that’s right, we make felt! You get a sound basis in the actual making of felt and also ideas of what you can create from this fabric. During the workshop you’ll be making a flower corsage. Again, this will be a work in progress as the pieces of felt will take overnight to dry. Things can get a bit messy making felt so old, comfortable clothes is the dress code! Workshop includes: Full tutoring All materials Refreshments (bring your own lunch) Price: £99 pp (alternatively, get a group together for your own private class. min 8)

Rag-Rugging

My goodness you probably remember your grandmother doing this; or perhaps like me, you’re of that certain age and remember doing it yourself in bygone years. Ideas for designs: Mats Wall Hangings Table centres; you get the chance to sesign your own...and it’s a great social day also. Your creation won’t be completed in one day, but this will be a work in progress (see photos of my own work). The wearing of old, comfortable clothes is highly recommended as this can get messy! Workshop includes: Full tutoring All materials Refreshments (bring your own lunch) Price: £65 pp (alternatively, get a group together for your own private class. min 10)

Hatinator Fascinator - uniquely mine

Hatinator is my own term - it’s a Fascinator that thinks it’s a hat. On this course, you will work with sinamay and at the end of this class, you’ll leave with an absolutely beautiful headpiece in addition to the pattern and of course, the ability to recreate the style. Hand-Sewing Machine-Sewing Some glueing Personal design Choice of base colour Workshop includes: Full tutoring All materials Refreshments (bring your own lunch) Low attendant number enabling almost one-to-one tutoring Price: £150pp (limited places - max 6) Due to the nature of this class, there is always a chance that it may run until 17:00 depending on the abilities of the group.
