Crafters Journaling Two-Day Workshop

Crafters Journaling Two-Day Workshop


Under-The-Edge-Arts Centre
Sat 22nd Jan 10am-4pm
Sun 23rd Jan 10:30 - 3:30pm

If you're anything like me you always have a creative project (or three) on the go and slowly accumulate all sorts of fabric, wool, patterns, and paper, especially through the winter. This two-day workshop is a celebration of visual crafts, be it knitting, quilting, sewing, or scrapbooking, combined with an introduction to the crafters journal. You will have the chance to explore beginners drawing and painting techniques as well as scrapbooking, and bookbinding - all whilst nattering with like-minded creatives, drinking tea, and eating cake!

  • Day 1: - Coptic book-binding - make your own crafters book - An introduction to watercolours - creating colour swatches.
  • Day 2: - Drawing for designers - the secrets of a working diary and how to sketch your progress - Creative pages - scrapbooking and stitchery

All art materials will be provided, but please bring along aspects of your chosen project(s) such as swatches, wool, half a quilt, your favourite pin cushion, your current knitting; anything that you're inspired by. You will have your own table to spread out over.

Lunch is not provided but tea, cake, and coffee will be on hand all day.

Suitable for all levels of ability, student discounts available - please get in touch after booking for a 10% refund, via the contact page or on WhatsApp : 07584436655
