We are available to run workshops and give talks and demonstrations at your group.
We regularly give talks, demonstrations or run workshops at local groups - whether you are a WI group, crafting group or something else, give us a call to discuss what we can offer you. We can cover papercrafting themes and jewellery themes and have many different workshops available. Subject to being in reasonable travelling distance.

Our workshops are designed to be fun! Come and learn in a relaxed atmosphere with experienced crafters – we have over 25 years experience between us!

We only have a maximum of 6 in a class so you will get individual guidance
No need to bring anything – we supply all materials – but feel free to bring favourite tools – but please make sure they are marked with your name.
Refreshments will be provided. You will have the opportunity to shop for supplies after your class.

Terms and Conditions.
Workshops must be booked and paid for in advance in full. Bookings are not confirmed until payment is received and a booking will only be held for 48 hours without payment before being released as available. You can pay in store, online or over the phone.
Cancellation Policy
Cancellations received with 48 hours notice of the workshop will be eligible for a 50% refund. Unfortunately cancellations received within 48 hours do not allow time to refill that place and so no refund can be issued. If we have to cancel, we will provide as much notice as possible and you will be entitled to a full refund or to move to a vacant space on an alternative same value workshop of your choice.
