Workshops for 2013…

November 29, 2012 at 13:29 Leave a comment

In between printing lucky bags for Saturday and packing up tools and materials for our workshops, we’ve managed to make some time to think about next year!

We have fabulous activities planned for the new year as well as some exciting collaborations. Get organised with our calendar making workshop in January before becoming loved up with our mosaic heart workshop in February.  With Spring around the corner, breathe new life into your home with a decoupage workshop in March and then make a tea cosy in April. See below for details of workshops at the Tooting Tram and Social and Ben’s Canteen.
