Own Project Day

In January 2014 we will be starting ‘Own Project Days’ where you can come and work on an existing project or a new idea that you haven’t yet started.  It can be sewing, knitting, rag rugging, drawing, painting, willow or any other kind of art or craft project.  There will not be any tutors on site, just like minded people working on their own projects and exchanging ideas.  You can stay for half or the whole day but it would be advisable to book in advance as spaces will be limited.

These will be run quarterly on the last Saturday of the month (January, April, July and October)

An Introduction to Willow with Bridget King

We have now held our first ‘Introduction to Willow’ workshop which was very popular, so much so that we have booked another introduction workshop for the 19th October.  The day was great fun with lots of questions asked but we all soon got the hang of it.  We began making a basic fish shape to get used to handling the willow and then we progressed onto flowers.  We experimented with coloured willow and came up with some lovely results.

Some of the learners enjoyed the day so much that they have now signed up for the ‘Christmas Willow’ workshop, fantastic!
