Metal embossed key holder / dog lead holder workshop



Suitable for beginners. Using aluminium we will create a design that will decorate a metal hanger. The metal hanger will be suitable for hanging lightweight items like keys or dog leads. A great gift idea for the person who has everything! I have designs that you can choose from, or you can bring your own design. The maximum size of your design should be 10cm x 10cm, so that it can fit on to the hanger. We'll go through the process of applying your chosen design to the metal, and then will learn how to gradually emboss the metal to the desired depth. Once the design has been finished, we can add texture and extra details. We'll then attach the metal to the base board of the hanger and then age the metal to finish off the hanger. Workshops will take place at my home workshop just outside Stanley, County Durham. Please note that my home workshop is accessed by stairs. There is a maximum number of four people on the workshop, so you will receive plenty of individual attention and tuition.

I’m Carrie, and I’m an artist and art and crafts teacher based in Stanley, north east England. I have been teaching art and crafts since the early 2000s and teach a weekly art and craft workshop in the local area for a social prescribing programme. Through personal experience, I know just how engaging with art and crafts can bring about a wonderful sense of wellbeing and relaxation. I absolutely love passing on my knowledge and the benefits of art and craft for wellbeing. I particularly enjoy teaching absolute beginners, so rest assured, whatever your art and craft experience, I will guide you through the process and make it as enjoyable as I can for you! I love to share my knowledge and tips and techniques, so I hope you'll find the classes fun and informative.
