Powertex Open Studios

March 23, 2019by Anita

 Eau Brink Studio is taking part in the Powertex Open Studios this weekend . We are open from 10 o’clock till 4 o’clock. Why not come along and learn what you can create with this fabulous fabric hardening medium?

You can bring along a chipped ornament, bowl or garden ornament and we can look at how we can enhance and repair it for a small sum of just £10.00.

Children can make wands or dragon Easter eggs. All you need is two hours and you can go home with a finished item.

The ladies at the Walpole Arts and Crafts Club enjoyed making these plaques on Friday Morning. To see more pictures just pop over to the Eau Brink Instagram or Facebook page.

The school children this week enjoyed making pictures using foils from little kits. Fairies and wizards were the most popular. Then we made cards and envelops for family and friends. Not so messy this week. I will put that right next week though.

Whats new for me?

I am going to make jelly roll rugs. A small one to start with just to get a feel for it. I think also I can make bowls using the same method but a little tighter. watch this space for an update on that one.

The Handmade Festival with Kirstie Allsopp  tickets are now available and you can get a discount by using this code at the checkout… SHOP. I would love to see you there on the 13TH – 15TH SEPTEMBER HAMPTON COURT. It is going to be bigger and better this year with new sellers and demonstrators.

I will be running a raffle for a Jelly Roll rug during this event. £1.00 a ticket going on sale soon.

 

Don’t forget.

The Embroiderers Guild exhibition will include make and take.   

Home made cakes to enjoy with your tea and coffee.
