Next Workshops Date 7th June 2008

Well todays (Saturday 24th May) workshops were a great success and thanks to everybody who attended.

We started off with card making this morning and made two beautiful cards - a castle design and a free design where the children got to choose what they wanted to design. We learned about punching, stamping and embellishing the cards and the cars turned out fantastic. I will put up pics of the demo cards we used next week and a step by step guide on how we made them.

Felicia's jewellery making class followed with everybody creating a beautiful bracelet and set of earrings using a range of beading techniques. Everybody got to choose their own beads and left with some amazing designs.

Finally our workshops finished off with glass painting. We got the chance to design our very own mirrors and used the Marabu glass painters to create some funky designs. We added that very special touch to our mirrors at the end by sticking on some glass jewels and buttons.

Everybody had lots of fun and our next workshops are already filling up. Details are as follows.
