A New Venue for Workshops have been organised for those of you reading this in the Long Sutton Area.

Silverwood, St James Rd, Long Sutton, Spalding PE12 9AU is a fabulous shopping experience with a room for workshops.

Each month I have organised to go into Silverwood and teach how to use your sewing machine for more than straight stitches. All you need is your sewing machine and a darning or embroidery foot. Threads and some fabrics. I will supply patterns and soluble film for the 3D effects.

Shibori Dyeing (tie Dye) using procion dyes is on trend this year. All dyes and some fabrics are included in the price.

Lampshade making using fabrics of your choice. The Shibori dyed lampshades work beautifully for this workshop.

Also returning is Powertex for beginners. This will include your materials to make brooches, bottles for candles, and boxes and plaques.

To book just go to https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/events/ and search for the workshop and date you are interested in. Whilst your rummaging around the events pages why not also look at the rest of the website to see what we get up to?

What else is new?

We now have a  YouTube channel. It is very new so please do go and take a look. Subscribe, and let me know what you think of the videos. Just go to youtube and look up anita O’Neill and you should be able to see it.

What am I working on?

PomPoms is the simple answer to that question. Hundreds of them. Which I am making cushions, pencil tops, rugs, bunting and much much more. I am amazed at how much I am enjoying it too.

I particularly love the variegated yarns. So pretty.

 

What else?

Experimental Wednesday is one of my favourite days where a lovely group has formed on the first Wednesday of every month. Now there is a second Wednesday where we will follow the same format we first started on so yo get to learn many techniques. Of course those of you in the first group are welcome to attend the second day if you want to go over anything we already covered. To book just follow the link. The first date is January 23rd and we will be working on Layers.  https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/event/experimental-wednesday-2-2/

There is only a Week To go till the festivities begin At Eau Brink..

What does that mean? Just 7 days to get ready for the coming year so that I can relax with my family and friends with good food and a drink or two. And it all kicks off with the burning of the yule log during the winter solstice. And that my friends means the light will be returning and the days will get longer. Hurrah!

The New year.

And what will the coming year bring? A new programme of events which include new workshops, less fairs, a new shop at Long Sutton, Experimentals first exhibition just to name a few. It will be an exciting year of creativeness.

I have a few last minute orders to complete first. If you guys want to order anything and want to save postage just come along and collect your order. I will be able to to this up to the evening of the 23rd. Then I will be closed until the new year. The website will be open as usual of course , which means you can book in for your workshops. Please note that there are new dates for the regular workshops so do check them out before calling me to ask why you can’t book. This has already happened.

From the 1st of January I will be setting up a little shop in the Craft Barn Village in Long Sutton. Where I will be putting items for sale as well as demonstrating for the coming workshops. This will help you see what is going to be happening at the workshops so you can decide if it is for you. Pop in days are also planned. There is a lovely Cafe where you can sit by the fire and slurp hot chocolate.

 

If you fancy coming to a workshop but do not want to travel to this side of Wisbech, I have a number of workshops planned for Silverwood.  Regular workshops include Shibori style dyeing, Lampshade making, and How to use your sewing machine for Free motion embroidery and cord making.  The tea shop is excellent too.

I hope you all have a great festive season with family and friends.
