or more information on each workshop below:
Printmaking (using foam): We start by cutting out our design from sticky-back foam. We then we go on to use a professional printing press and ink to transfer our design onto card. These can then be made into cards or framed at home. For this one, I would recommend wearing clothes which you don't mind getting dirty! It's rare that people do get ink on their clothes - but if you do it does stain them permanently.
Quilling: We roll thin strips of quilling paper and experiment with creating lots of different shapes. This is the most 'fiddly' of the workshops but, as with all of the others, you can create beautiful pieces of art. You can either use your quilled pieces on a pearlised gift box (this is provided as part of the workshop) or you can create a picture from your quilled pieces over card.
Felting: Wet felting (left) and Needle felting (right) both involve using dyed sheep’s wool. We use beautiful colours and they’re lovely in terms of working with texture. The wet felting workshop requires more physical work - lots of rolling of wool so a fair amount of arm exercise!
Fused Glass Coaster: With the glass fusing, we use glassline pen. We start by drawing out a plan of our design and then we go onto drawing it with our ‘pen’ onto the glass to make a coaster. The glass piece is then fired in my studio’s kiln and is ready to collect from the studio within the week.
