Crafts Afloat full day workshops aboard a beautiful narrowboat art studio in Hebden Bridge!
Workshops start at 10.30am and finish at 4.30pm.
If you are a bit of a magpie like me, you will love this workshop!
You will have the option to make a mosaic mirror or a piece of mosaic art. Your mosaic piece of work will be decorated with a selection of glass tiles, coloured glass, broken crockery and mirror. The boat is stocked with an exciting array of colourful, shimmery, patterned and iridescent treasures to add texture, pattern, detail and sparkle to your work.
This workshop is ideal for those who fancy a relaxing and peaceful day of creativity. It is a brilliant workshop for all levels and excellent for those who feel they aren’t that arty! You will be taught how to snip tiles, score glass and apply the pieces. These skills can be taken away with you and used to carry on creating if you so desire! The techniques used are easy to pick up and advice and exciting imagery is provided to inspire designs and colour choices.
The workshops I offer to individuals and private groups, are designed for art and craft lovers, beginners or experienced crafters, and for those who simply want to enjoy a creative day out. The workshops have proved popular with mothers and daughters and family and friends who wish to spend some quality time together. The narrowboat studio is a wonderful space, specifically designed to help you unwind, relax and get creative. The boat seats a maximum of 4-5 people depending on the workshop or party.
I am currently running full day workshops in Felted Textiles, Mosaics and Beginners Glass Fusing. I run one workshop in each specialism per month for individuals to book onto, with extra dates available for private full boat bookings.
