As 2015 comes to an end it's only when looking back over photos taken throughout the year I can see how busy it was - we saw the launch of the farm magazine that Barry puts together and somehow makes sense of all of our contributions! In 2016 I'll be adding a cake recipe to each craft feature, I have added a few new ones this year...
Still finding a few of our old favourites on the 2016 workshop list but inbetween you will find some exciting new things to try!
Just because you sometimes need a photo of a handsome pig in amongst all the crafting loveliness...
Adding to the children's workshops which are held in the school holidays there is also now a Saturday Children's Sewing Club!
A small project is worked on between 12 and 3, ideally for children 8years and up who must be accompanied by an adult. The dates for next year are
and the cost is £15 per child with everything included - please note that we do use sewing machines and sharp scissors! Booking ahead is essential to save your space.
Our shy Christmas Crafters hiding behind their Rag Wreaths...and who could forget Stevie the Monster who also had a pet carrot who lived in a Carrotvan? One of my favourite monsters from Draw a monster, make a monster workshops!
So if there are any workshops on the list you would love to come along to then book early as we usually only have very small numbers on many of the courses.
As a special thank you any Early Bird bookings are at the prices charged in 2015 (usually £35) as next year there will be a small increase unfortunately. If circumstances mean that you are unable to attend just let me know as soon as possible and your deposit can be moved to another date.
