About the Course
Crafting with the Magpies is a brand new event for 2019 and it involves 5 crafts in one day. Wow!! These crafts have been specifically chosen to work within a hour time frame each. You need absolutely no crafting experience at all to join in. All materials are provided and each craft has a specialist tutor to help and guide you through each session.
On arrival at 9.30am at The Flour Mill Studio (there is a flight of steps to climb to access the studio), you’ll be greeted with a prosecco and a good lump of cake. We’ll start with a brief introduction and plan of the day.
At 10.15am we’ll start our first craft, you will be working in groups of 6 per table, but you will do your craft individually. You will have a 15 minute introduction and demo of each craft and then 45 minutes to complete your item. After an hour at each table, the gong will sound and it’s time to move to the next craft!
We will break at half 12 for a well deserved light lunch provided by a lovely local cafe (cake is 100% involved).
At 1.30pm we will continue with two more craft sessions until 4pm when we will stop for a glass of prosecco or a nice brew (and of course more cake).
4.30pm will be the start of our final craft and at the stroke of 5.30pm the final gong will sound and it’s time to relax, with a good cup of tea of course. You will be very welcome to chat to our tutors about the crafts from the day and ask any questions. We use this time to have a look at all the lovely work completed throughout the day.
The 5 crafts we have chosen for the event are:
Shibori dyed cotton cushion cover
Mini hoop hand embroidery
3D layered framed paper cut (Mini)
Simple book binding – Japanese stab bound notebook
Air dry clay trinket tray and gift tags
If all of this excitement isn’t enough we have one more surprise! Every event attendee will receive a branded Two Little Magpies badge and cotton bag, just perfect for taking your finished crafts home in.
