NEW for 2018! The Crafty Lass does… Sketchbook Creativity Class including ‘Bind Your Own Sketchbook’!

An exciting and creative new event here at The Crafty Lass… Why not try something new for 2018? #NewYearNewSkill

Tuesday evenings: 19.15 – 21.15  The Crafty Lass – Sketchbook Creativity Class including ‘Bind Your Own Sketchbook’.

Come and enjoy a chance for some weekly social creativity out of your busybusybusy day at ‘The Crafty Lass’ Old Grain Store workshop studio! #CLOGS

Meet like-minded people and turn everyday items into extraordinary subjects of pattern, light and colour – looking at things in a new way… Then bind your own sketchbook!

  • Each class there will be a new surprise subject – for example such as ‘Afternoon Tea’, ‘Water’, ‘The Sewing Box’ or ‘Metals’ – and a themed display for which to draw inspiration from.
  • We will focus on a specific medium each week such as paints, charcoal, inks and even ‘ordinary’ biros and highlighters, papers and fabrics for collage – but everything will always be available for you should you decide this style isn’t for you or you want to incorporate something new! Perhaps you’d like to add in a splash of colour, or purely draw in pencil.
  • The papers we will be working on are from ‘Homeward Bound Books’ – they will be A5 in size and include various boards including handmade Indian paper, coloured, cream, different textured and kraft brown paper to further explore what works best as a base for each theme and medium.
  • One of the most exciting aspects to this course – is each A5 piece of paper will have holes pre-added for binding – and the final week of this course will be a chance to reflect – looking back at our drawings, deciding in which order you would like them to go – and most crafty, learning how to bind them together into a beautiful sketchbook to treasure as a keepsake of the classes. There will be spare paper to additionally add in to the book and continue the inspiration on post The Crafty Lass Creativity term.
  • There will be no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way to represent the items on display – a chance to get expressive and creative! You can focus on one precise drawing for the 2 hour session, or perhaps make 10 expressive doodles – you can draw one item from the display, or everything in it and more – you can do whatever you like!
  • If lacking for ideas and inspiration – The Crafty Lass will guide you through with hints and tips to produce some exciting and interesting artwork.
  • Feel free to move around the studio – or swap seats with another person to gain a new perspective or different angle.
  • There will be a chance to take photos of the display each week should you wish to continue your inspiration and drawing beyond the class.
  • Each class will include refreshments.*

Make. Create. Inspire.

The Crafty Lass does… Workshop planning!

My mind is bursting to the brim full of ideas, my Pinterest page is certainly busy – but what is best? And what is achievable?

A little while ago when I first started to plan for The Crafty Lass, I sent out a little ‘Survey Monkey’ questionnaire for some feedback as to what people would like to learn, to Make, to Create and to be Inspired by. Some of those workshop suggestions are still very relevant, some ideas have developed, but I took all those points on board. It may have been a while since I have been able to action on them – but, it is all there, ready and waiting to be put into place.

The dream and plan is very much more real and actually achievable now… what being a mobile craft workshops business provided in flexibility with location – it was hindered by what I could physically offer by carrying equipment and materials by myself!! With an actual ‘The Craft Space’ workshop plans in full swing – the furniture is being made, the chairs have arrived, the vision is strong for the final finishing touches… but none of it is worth while without the actual workshops, and you…!

I have some great workshop plans already in fruition – but:

What would you like to learn or make? What do you want to try? Or, do you just want to come along for a social crafty gathering with like minded people, for a cuppa and cake?

Sewing? Crochet? Decoupage? Christmas makes? Weddings? Papercraft? …Something entirely different? … I would love to hear from you and your ideas! 

Get in touch. 🙂
