Treat yourself to some ME time and try something new in three hours or less in these four fun workshops
Grab a friend or schedule some solo ME time and get crafty at our West Hampstead shop! All of the workshops that follow require no prior experience, include all materials, and will have you walking out the door with a finished project. Think you’re too busy? These are all sessions of three hours or less that will give you the chance to try something totally new and exercise your creative muscles without committing to a brand new hobby, unless, of course, you want to! Sound amazing? Read on!
Create Your Own Stationery
Tuesday, 20 June, 6:30pm – 9pm (£35)
In this special paper craft workshop you will be taught two techniques – dip dying and paper embossing – so you can learn how to personalise your own greetings cards, envelopes and paper to create a beautiful collection of designed stationery. You will take away a collection of handmade greetings cards, envelopes, gift tags and loose paper sheets to give to loved ones or decorate your home.
Crochet a Basket
Sunday, 9 July, 11am – 1:30pm (£40)
Learn to crochet while creating a fun and endlessly useful crochet basket out of recycled t-shirt yarn! This class will introduce you to the basics of crochet, how to follow a crochet pattern, how to change colours and how to finish a crochet project.
Paint a Planter
Wednesday, 12 July, 6:30pm – 9pm (£45)
Get your creative juices flowing with our Paint a Planter Workshop! We will play with colour, pattern and mark making before painting our ceramic planters with specialist paint and experimenting with beautiful gold leaf. By the end of the class you will have created your very own waterproof ceramic planter which you can fill with either a cacti or succulent.
Make a Macrame Wall Hanging
Saturday, 15 July, 10:30am – 12:30pm (£40)
Macrame is a form of textile-making that uses knots rather than weaving or knitting. In this class you’ll learn macrame basics, including how to get started, how to create square knots, how to use knots to create a pattern and how to customise or design your own pattern for future projects. You’ll leave class with a beautiful wall-hanging made from recycled t-shirt yarn and hand-collected local wood.
