The workshop will be relaxed, fun and creative! Astra has planned out the activities so that everyone can make customised, personal items that look amazing and professional!
3 hour workshop:
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.
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 short 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.
Please arrive at 9.45am for some refreshments before 10am start :)
