Natalie Griffin Lantern Making A fun crafty course where you will make a set of 3 beautiful lanterns using your choice of fabric. The lanterns use battery operated tea lights giving the effect of a flame, delivering unique mood lighting for all occasions without the risk of fire, mess or fumes! This workshop gives everyone the chance to take something personal and handmade away whilst learning a different crafting skill
Melanie Blaikie Silver Clay This workshop will be a whirlwind introduction to the wonderful world of silver clay. An innovative, new form of pure silver, the ‘clay’ is soft, pliable and easy to work with. Together, we will design and create a simple textured pendant. Choose your texture and be amazed as we turn ‘clay’ into sparkling silver. Your pendant will be super-shiny and ready to wear (or send for hall-marking) by the end of the session.
Jill Arthur Seasonal Baking Summer is a time when we can enjoy picnics and having the chance to eat outdoors. It nice to have homemade goodies in the hamper to enjoy. So we will make a tear and share cheese bread and an apricot flapjack.
