New Classes and Workshops
We're always trying to bring you new and exciting things to do here at The Workshop. So far this year we've introduced Flower Arranging and Digital Photography as well as re-running one or two favourites from last year, such as Rope Knotting (coming up in October)
We're very pleased to say we've got a couple of other brand new ones to add to the list that will hopefully inspire you to come along and try something new!
Firstly we have a Batik workshop coming up on Saturday 5th September with the very talented heather Gatt showing how to master the art of wax-resisting dyeing applied to a base cloth
Following on from that we have the very talented Christina Lewis here to do a 6-week Creative Writing course, starting on Thursday 10th September, where participants will be guided along towards writing a short story
If you are a keen artist or budding writer then these 2 new events are perfect for you! Full details of both of these will be on our Classes and Workshops pages very shortly, although they are already on the main calendar planner
Come and spend a day being Creative!
We know a lot of you are unable to come to our Saturday full-day workshops as you work at the weekend
We've therefore decided to put on Chrissy's Workshops on a Monday and Friday every week so that you can come along (10am to 4pm) and have a full day being creative
With Chrissy guiding you all the way you could makeover a piece of furniture, decoupage an object (maybe a mirror or a bathroom cabinet) or even spend the day learning how to make a mosaic - the choice is yours!
The cost is £45 for the full day plus the cost of materials used. The next monthly Craft Day is on Friday 3rd July 2015
If you'd like to come along ring us on 01723 859060 or you can
