We had the best day in Peterborough on Sunday. Meeting many people who are like minded and enjoy making crafts which included lace making, needlefelting, Powertex, Hand stitch and machine stitch and of course everything in between. which included threads, beads, needles and much much more. Thank you to all our customers old and new who visited us on Sunday.
Oh the girls look very different now that their locks are off and they look much happier now that they are not carrying that weight.
For me what a joy sorting through the fleece, cleaning each lock and then dyeing it a fab colour. Some of the locks are over 14 inches long from tip to cut end. I will be selling packs at the Doughty’s Roadshow at Mundford on the 29th April. Bags start from £3.00 for a 25gram bag. I am also dyeing small pieces of fabric to match each batch. It is 100% cotton from Empress Mills.
New Workshops have been added to the website including a holiday club in August for the children and parents. From 10 am till 2pm on a Wednesday. The children will get to experience different ways of adding colour to paper and fabric. Refreshments included but bring a picnic. Sit outside and watch the fish jumping in the pond, say hello to the sheep, ducks and chickens. A responsible adult must be present due to the large pond and safety. Discount given if more than one child per family.
We have just had the most fantastic weekend with the lovely Amanda Hislop who taught us how to make wonderful stitched scenes using scraps, inks, acrylic paints, walnut ink, paper, gesso, machine and hand stitch. We were a little worried when Amanda told us we would be drawing using just line but all that meant was getting your pen and literally drawing lines across the pages in a flowing line just like you see as a landscape horizon. But the best bit was when she told us to fold our pages and then cut them and we all made little books.
Amanda is returning next year for another two day workshop. Book early so you do not miss out.
Now the workshop page is even better. You can take a look at what is of interest to you and click on book and then a couple of clicks later you are up and running all the way to Eau Brink Studio for a fantastic workshop. www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk
The new booking system is working a treat and has been moved to the Workshop page of the website. Take a look at the workshops you want to book and then scroll down to the end of the page to book. Much easier than before. If you do not want to book this way thats okay just give me a call on 01553 762115
