Our workshops are relaxed, fun and creative! Astra has planned out the activities so that everyone can make customised, personal items that look amazing and professional!
- Create your own handmade personal reminders to smile
- Have fun & make friends with likeminded people
- Learn some of the amazing science behind positivity & happiness
3 hour workshop:
- Create an inspirational keepsake charm of 20 quotes
- Irish linen wall banner with your own unique design
- A 21 day gratitude journal
- Short talks by Astra on the science of positivity & happiness
- 25% discount on all Itty Bitty products bought on the day
- Refreshments and homemade treats
We’ll help you to choose a focus for your keepsake charm, then you’ll select the quotes, collate them and choose your bead colours. We’ll demonstrate how to bind the charm and secure the beads (similar to our book bind), then you’ll finish creating your own, very personal collection of quotes.
The Irish linen wall banner will be provided blank for you to string up and embellish. We will have a wide range of words, symbols & graphics for you to work with, once you’ve created your own unique design, we’ll help you heat transfer it permanently onto your banner. Completely unique & one of a kind!
Astra will give a short talk about positive thinking/gratitude and happiness. She’ll cover a few of the less known effects of positivity as well as fun and easy ways to incorporate positive thinking into our busy lives.
We like to keep our groups small so that we can all get to know each other and to make sure everyone gets the help they need with the craft activities so spaces are limited to just 15.
Please arrive at 2.15pm for some refreshments before 2.30 start :)
Our craft workshops are held at the awesome Blick studios, Hill Street in the Cathedral Quarter, Belfast. See background picture in graphics! It has a great vibe and is the perfect mix of relaxed & professional.
There is on street parking on the surrounding streets and since it’s a Saturday that should be easy! If you don't mind a walk google maps can point you to a number of car parks & the train stations.
Please note the workshop space is on the third floor, and unfortunately the building does not have a lift.
