About the Course

You don't need any special skills or experience to make and take 3 no. 6x6 cards in a morning, afternoon or evening. I will show you every technique, to include backgrounds blending Distress Oxides, Brushos, Colour Cloud Blending Ink, brushing with Distress Inks, embossing, stencilling and more. Over 200 stamps to choose from and about 400 samples.

I specialise in stamping with Lavinia Stamps, which are mainly fantasy, particularly fairies. I also use Inkylicious stamps which are mainly scenic in nature. I have a dedicated workroom and I have been teaching for many years.

I have regular members who come every month and I have groups that come on an ad hoc basis. Groups are a maximum of 4 (5 at a squeeze) and a minimum of 2 and we are very informal. Please see the Gallery.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

I supply everything you need, including cards, stamps, inks, sponges, stencils, tools and equipment. You don't need to bring anything except your enthusiasm. I also supply light refreshments.

As total novices, we were amazed at what we managed to produce. As a group of 4, we always had tasks to be getting on with while June managed her time with the others. She has an Aladdin's cave of supplies and materials. We did both baubles and cards and were very impressed with how they turned out. June is a patient teacher and we would highly recommend her friendly classes

Hi Charmaine. The girls were so good. They knew what they wanted and all their cards turned out perfect. It was an absolute pleasure to teach them. Hopefully they'll come again soon x

I have been to June Adams workshops three times and I am totally hooked. You come away with all these amazing magical cards that you can't believe you have made. June is so patient and I have so enjoyed her workshops including one for my birthday which was such a surprise.

I only wish June lived nearer that I could attend more of her workshops.

Yes I would thoroughly recommend one of June's workshops as a Birthday/Christmas etc present.

Thank you so much Bridget. A chance meeting in Hobbycraft brought us together and I'm so happy you have enjoyed the workshops x

Since she started them, I have attended June's workshops on numerous occasions and she offers valuable advice to all levels of card makers. New techniques are demonstrated well and new products are highlighted on her Facebook page regularly.
Baubles now are also being featured in her workshops - they are truly beautiful.

Response from Cardinal Cards:

Thank you Les. You always seem to go home covered in glitter! I'm happy you enjoy the workshops x

I have now been to June’s on two occassions and I’m so pleased with the cards I have made. June is a lovely lady and very helpful and knowledgable. It’s a very relaxed environment which makes you feel comfortable and I for one would never have thought I could make the cards I have with June’s help. Thoroughly recommend this course to anyone who would like to have a go at making cards with stamps.

Hi Rachel. Thank you for your comments. It's lovely to know you are happy with your cards and it's a pleasure to share my experience with you x

Wow! I was quite intimidated by stamping before going to the class but June has given me the confidence to experiment and shown me how it is easy to get great results with simple techniques. It's easy to learn in such a relaxed atmosphere. Thank you June, I'm sure to come back soon!

Response from Cardinal Cards:

Hi Trudy. Thank you for your lovely review. I know you were not keen on stamping when you arrived, but it was lovely to hear that you were more than happy with your stamped cards and actually looked forward to more stamping in the future. Hope to see you again soon x

The group was highly recommended by friends so I joined with another group of friends . As a beginner the lovely June is patient, encouraging and willing to share her great knowledge, enabling us to make cards that we can't believe we made our selves. I would totally recommend the craft course, it is fun, value for money and really helps you to develop your card making skills.

Response from Cardinal Cards:

Thank you Leona. I know you are already a card maker so it's lovely to hear that you have gained more knowledge from the workshops and more ways to use what you already have. Hope to see you again soon x

I have been a number of times now and I really do love it. I've learnt so much, it's fun, friendly, interesting and fantastic value for money. Would definitely recommend to anyone of any ability, I've been going with my 85 year old Nan and she loves it too!
