So first up we have Festive Calligraphy, Katie from The Craftsy Creator has held workshops at every market this year and they've all been so popular so she's back one again!

 

Modern calligraphy is a relaxing and fun creative art form which can be used for so many things, including wedding invitations and menus, greetings cards and crafts. Whether you're a complete beginner or have some basic experience, come along to this introductory workshop where you'll learn how to hold your pen, be given guidance on creating letters and words and create your first piece of calligraphy art which you can take home. Introductory workshops are a great way try out brush calligraphy in an informal and friendly environment. You'll receive a brush calligraphy starter kit on the day, including a brush pen and worksheets, which you'll use on the day and get to take home to practice your new skill. 

 

This time the workshop has a festive twist ... by the end of the workshop you'll have all the skills to create beautiful Christmas cards, gift wrapping and tags, and you'll work on your very own greetings card design to take home with you for someone special.

Due to the popularity of this craft we are running 2 sessions (see times below) so do book in fast as spaces get snapped up quickly !!

10:30-11:30am & 12-1pm          £25 per person                9+

 

 

 

Next up we have a beaded snowflake decoration workshop run by Jewellery by Design ... it's the perfect pre Christmas workshop as you'll be making a beautiful decoration to hang up in your home.

 

It would look beautiful on your tree, hung on a fireplace or on the wall ... you can choose what combination of beads so you'll create a bespoke piece perfect for your home. Sally will talk you through the process and help you create a decoration you are really proud of! 
There is also the option of purchasing an additional kit for £6 so you can make another snowflake at home ... they would make lovely gifts too so why not make your snowflake to give to a loved one ? 

10:30am -12pm               £15 + optional £6 kit          10+

 

 

Needle felting is another workshop that has run before at our market ... and it is a wonderful craft to learn. SJ from SJ's Fluff n Stuff will be teaching you how to needlefelt an adorable santa figure.

 

She'll show you how to use the needle to create different shapes and textures. A perfect stress reliever, you can needlefelt your stresses away whilst creating the perfect little Santa to bring out every year ... or you could gift it to a loved one ! This is our longest workshop and a great one to really get your crafty fix ... SJ is super lovely and you know you'll always have a really great time at her workshops ! 
Due to the sharp needles we recommend only 12+ attend, please be aware that they will need to be quite responsible and mature. 

10:30am - 1:30pm           £25                            12+

 

 

We've got another festive workshop and this one is super useful for this time of year ... Tammy from TabbyKat Studio will be teaching you how to create lino printed wrapping paper! Linocut is a form of printmaking in which an image is cut into a piece of lino with sharp knives and gouges and the raised areas are inked and burnished into paper or onto fabric. Simple tools can be used to get started but it may soon become addictive!!

We will learn about tools, process and repeating patterns and you will take away your own wrapping paper design. You'll also be able to take home your stamp so you can continue to print at home! An apron or old top is advisable as fingers get inky. 

There are 2 sessions running for this workshop (see times below) so lots of spaces for you to book into !! 

1:30pm-2:30pm & 3pm-4pm                £15           12+

 

Hannah from Peggy Pom is teaching the next workshop and it's a beautiful one ! Learn the basics of weaving and create your own wall hanging. Working on a small wooden lap loom, you will learn a range of simple and effective techniques to create a modern wall hanging with lots of texture.

 

By using and exploring different yarns and fibres, she will also be teaching how to warp a loom and how to finish and hang their creations. 

An optional starter pack is available to purchase for £20 which includes: 1x small wooden loom,1x comb,1x heddle bar,1x weaving needle, 2x metal rods to help keep your weaving straight, 50g warp thread 

1:30pm-4pm           £25 (+ optional £20 starter kit)           15+

 

The final workshop to tell you about is with the wonderful Fiona from Pegasus gifts .., she will be teaching how to make a brilliant alternative to a normal Christmas wreath. You will make your pom poms and attach them to a 6 inch frame, then finish it off to create something that you'll be able to hang up every Christmas ! Choose between two festive designs ... a fun Christmas pudding or a green mix 'Holly and Ivy' design. The wreaths will be approximately 20cm/ 8 inches when finished and you'll hang it with a lovely festive ribbon ! 

2pm - 4pm                £30                     15+
