Crafting Is Good For You …

(Join My Craft Workshops In Winchester and I'll Prove It!)

I believe this, I live this. That is why I run craft workshops in Winchester, Hampshire. That is also why I blog about crafts. I encourage "grown ups" to take time out from their busy lives. While you craft (any sort of craft) you are in the moment, truly present. You can relax, socialise, forget your worries and stimulate your creativity.

The Workshops

Join a workshop at "The Nest", just outside Winchester, Hampshire. I offer a wide variety of crafts and they are deliberately planned to de-mystify crafts and allow ANYONE to produce an attractive result that they can be proud of.

Alternatively choose the craft you want to try and host your own "Craft Party". Yourself and four of your friends, in your own home, at a time and date that is convenient for you. I bring the expertise, materials and kit you need. You bring the company!

No matter what the craft, you will work in a small group with plenty of support through the whole process. Wherever possible you take a finished project home with you at the end of the workshop.

I aim to provide a relaxing and stimulating experience to help you take a break from routine and re-discover your creativity.

Upcoming Workshops @ The Nest

There are no upcoming events at this time.

The Blog…

I provide information about the materials and techniques that you may have tried and suggest potential next projects where you can build upon your new skills. I also aim to introduce you to people who work in these fields that will amaze and inspire you.

Browse the latest entries or pick a material and see if you can find something you can try!
