Workshop Information:

for an idea of what we make in workshops, click here.

  • Workshops spaces are filled on a first come, first served basis and places limited so I can get around to everyone and allow time for sharing hints, tips and tutorials.
  • Full day workshops contain a minimum of 5 projects, mainly cards but also another papercraft project like favour boxes, bags or other dimensional objects, depending on the time of year.
  • Project kits contain everything needed to make the card, with the exception of glue, double sided tape, foam pads and colouring tools for images - see what you need to bring below.
  • The day is informal and you can work at your own pace!
  • You will be given the opportunity to use inks, stamps and embossing / die cutting tools and machines during the day.
  • Depending on the season, and the theme for the day, the cards will be made using a mixture of die cuts, Rubber stamp / digi images and decoupage.
Note - I respect digital artists' usage policies and where digital crafting products are used in workshops, I have sought permission from the artist directly - digital images and papers should not be shared without express permission from the artist.
If you wish to share / use digital images from the Internet, ensure they are copyright free or you seek permission from the creator.
