Bee Inspired
With Spring just around the corner we have turned to the gorgeous bee for inspiration for our next workshop.
We love it when our crafters get to pick up a variety of new skills and come away with a bag of hand crafted goodies. In our Bee Inspired workshop you will be able to move around our stations at your own pace and enjoy working on a range of creations.

You will create your own rag wreath in gorgeous spring colours. It is such a relaxing craft and helps bring your home into the new season with a splash of colour. Next you might like to try your hand at needle felting. We will be creating an adorable bumblebee, our inspiration for the day. At another station we will be showing you how to make beaded bracelets, first demonstrating the tools and findings before letting you loose on our bead stash. You are sure to find something to suit your style or you may wish to incorporate a bee or honeycomb bead to really match the day. We will also be showing you how to create your own beeswax wraps (without ruining your own irons!) We use a combination of beeswax and roisin to get just the right texture. These are a fabulous replacement for single use clingfilm in your kitchen and look lovely too! We will have a wide range of pure cotton fabric for you to choose from so you will be able to find a pattern to suit your style, or your kitchen! Finally, we will be making origami baskets decorated with crepe paper flowers, perfect to carry home your Spring creations!

You will have full access to refreshments throughout the day and will be served a delicious home prepared lunch.

The workshop is hosted in the Great Barn of the stunning Hautbois Hall, a Tudor manor house in the glorious Norfolk countryside. It really is the perfect day to relax and welcome in the new season. Self-catering accommodation is also available if you would like to make a weekend of it.
