Workshop 2022 highlights

Chunky Bargello Drinks Coaster

Nerrisa Pratt was on hand to show you how to get to grips with Bargello in this supersized version of our coaster making workshop. We’ll use super chunky yarn and 7 count canvas to make a colourful coaster super quick, a perfect home for your favourite mug or even for a plant pot too.

Make Your Own Magic Magnet

You will choose from a mix of different shapes and as if by magic, scratch in your own design to reveal a pop of colour underneath. You can draw, write or scratch your own design into the surface. You will finish the piece by adding a self-adhesive magnet.

Needle Felt a Mini Landscape with Sheep

Make a mini needle felted landscape with cute sheep! By using natural wool fibres and a barbed needle you will learn the basics of 2D needle felting by pushing the wool fibres through a small piece of fabric to create a little work of art. For children or school groups only.
