Christmas Crafts for All Ages!

It’s been an extra crafty week this week!

I really enjoyed running a workshop at Moat Park  retirement village near Dunmow. The participants were really enthusiastic and very pleased with their Christmas decopatch decorations and their seasonal wreaths. They were all great and so different from each other! The conversation was lovely too- not to mention the cakes!

The Kids Christmas Workshops I ran on Saturday were also a success. The children enjoyed making wreaths and paper flowers and there was indeed plenty of glitter and sparkles! It didn’t take me too long to get rid of the glitter.. Keep your eyes peeled for Children’s Art and Craft workshops coming in the New Year.

For the week coming up  I will only be opening the studio for a half day on Wednesday – evening classes as usual though and no class on Friday .


Here are some of my latest vintage finds- on sale at the studio! Yummy colour..

It’s always lovely to do a vintage fair in Hertford and it went really well – I parted company with a lot of lovely clothes and only purchased a small piece of fabric for myself!! It’s less lovely to unpack everything again – had a bit of a re-arrange of the studio though and have about  two feet more space!

Going to have to pack different things for Saturday’s Farmer’s Craft Market- including Christmas decorations that I’ve been making.

Craft classes are on this week and many will have a Christmas theme…


I’m going to be running some Christmas Craft Workshops in the studio too. The one will be on Monday 23rd of November 6.30 to 9pm. Learn how to make origami Christmas cards and decorations and a festive tissue paper wreath. Cost will be £25 and includes, tea, coffee and mince pies of course!

If there’s lots of demand I’ll run the workshop on Saturday the 21st of November too. Let me know asap!
