Christmas Hearts workshop

heartsrednwhite

Come all ye craftful, and escape the consumer chaos by spending a relaxing afternoon making beautiful Christmas heart decorations. I will show you how to make simple motif hearts, with whatever message you like on them, as well as traditional Scandinavian woven hearts (which are actually little pockets, so you can hang them on the tree with a chocolate coin or treasure inside). They look complicated, but they’re really not. Step away from the madding crowds, slow down, and let your creative self play.

Make them for gifts, make them just for yourself, make as many as you want. A perfect antidote to rushing around buying mass-produced gubbins, you will come away from this workshop with your festive soul healed.

Seasonal refreshments and scintillating conversation provided as standard, and there is also a lovely cafe downstairs if you want to get lunch. Tickets available below. Concessionary rate of £17 available to those in receipt of benefits or on a very low income, just apply the code “Dodo” at the checkout 🙂

Sock Monster Workshop

More monsters

Come playful people and turn an ordinary sock into an extraordinary monster. A perfect, thoughtful and weird Christmas present, for yourself, or I suppose someone else (you can make more than one if you can’t bear to part with it). All materials provided, but you can bring your own sock if you wish!. Come and learn a fun new skill, it’s easier than you think 🙂

Suitable for age 9+, no prior sewing ability necessary.

Tea and bikkits will be provided, and there is also a lovely cafe downstairs if you want to get lunch. Tickets available below. Concessionary rate of £17 available to those in receipt of benefits or on a very low income, just apply the code “Dodo” at the checkout 🙂

Christmas is coming!

Christmas is very exciting, and although I’m running a little late this year (hectic autumn), I have actually started listing some Christmas stuff in the shop.  Go on, go take a look, you might see something you like!  Folksy or Etsy, it’s up to you which one you visit.

There will be more listings soon, so keep checking back.  Handmade gifts are much more special, you know that.  If there’s anything you don’t see, but would like, get in touch and I’ll see what I can do.  Custom cross-stitch, embroidery or sock monster.  Or how about a personalised tree decoration? Whatever you choose (or don’t choose), have a fun time browsing for presents (you can buy something for me if you like).
