About the Course
Our 2020 workshop programme at Cowshed Creative is now on OUR website (purple tab above) with full details and info on how to book. Packed with inspiring art and craft workshops, book now to avoid disappointment – The perfect Christmas gift!
A great opportunity to experiment with mixed media techniques and create a
concertina book based on memories, which can also be displayed as a wall piece.
Using layering techniques, with images and text, papers and fabrics, these will be
fused together with wax. You will be able to embellish your work with embroidery,
buttons, ribbons or lace. A lovely keepsake or gift; maybe for Easter or Mothers day.
You can bring photocopied images from your personal collection of photographs, postcards or letters or if you don’t have any, there will be plenty available on the day.

This workshop is at Cowshed Creative, based in a converted Cumbrian barn on a traditional Lakeland Farm. The art studio is a stunning open plan space with plenty of room to wander outside and take inspiration from the amazing Lakeland landscape and environment of the peaceful Kentmere Valley. Make it a special break and stay on the farm. Chekc out our website for availability,
