Workshops!

 As visitors to HH HQ know very well it is a lovely place but not the warmest so we have to stop the workshops around about oooooh, now! Last soap making workshop in the upstairs studio today - we have plum cake, freshly made just now!
But this year we have been invited to have some workshops at Beat The Boredom which is just up the road from HH HQ on the Lion Barn Industrial Estate! It's a fantastic place run by the rather wonderful Debbie and her fantastic team, providing workshops and fun for children and adults. 
The first workshop is one that EVERYONE has been asking about and that is cushion making...get to grips with using a sewing machine, measuring and cutting fabric with confidence! Thursday 25th October 6.30 - 9.30 pm limited to four persons £40
Then we have more soap, perfect for Christmas presents! It's another handmade Christmas this year and quite rightly so...Saturday 27th October 2 - 6 pm making four different soaps using the cold process method of soap making and using some lovely essential oils and butters.
Limited to four persons £50

 We have yet more sewing, beginners sewing making a brilliantly practical apron with BIG pockets and using some brilliant fabrics! Measuring accurately and cutting with confidence. Learn how to use a sewing machine or bring along your own. Thursday 8th November 6 -9 pm limited to four persons £35
Receiving an invitation to a double Christening of two siblings, a boy and a girl and struggling to think of a gift suitable for them both led to these fun Tooth Fairy pillows being made - I love this Pirate fabric! Come along and have a go at free machine embroidery and use it to produce some little cushions, my ma has already told me to make some for my niece and nephew...
Free machine embroidery is a lot of fun, I can't get enough of it!
Saturday 17th November 2 - 5 pm limited to six persons £25 

 Psssst! If you don't have any little people about to become friends with the Tooth Fairy then YOU could use this workshop to make some fun decorations for Christmas or some gifts....

 Another popular workshop this year has been the Container Candles, we've produced some lovely candles and the scents of Christmas have been wafting about the shop! As it's getting close to Christmas we have also been making the pine cone firelighters from A Green Guide To Country Crafts...they are so lovely and also make superb gifts! Thursday 22nd November £25

 I love felt!
It is so nice to play with and teaming it with a little embroidery floss makes for a very pleasant afternoon. I made this pretty little hair slide and plan to make one with my niece this Christmas when I give her a sewing kit and start to teach her to stitch!
Come along and have a nice afternoon of gentle stitching - make some trims for the tree or yourself!
Saturday 24th November 2 - 5 £15
Apologies for the blurry felt pic...
All workshop spaces are to be confirmed by myself and a place is secured once payment has been made. Payment can be made by card, cheque or paypal - please check for availability before making payment.
I'm so looking forward to holding workshops at Beat The Boredom and hopefully meeting a few new people and introducing them to some crafty fun!
