Day 1 of the event was very successful. The workshop was textiles and we sectioned it into four parts.
1) Meet and greet-
When everyone was settled in the cafe area of Baildon Community Link, with a lovely cuppa, particpants were asked to look through various crafting magazines, books and examples. This helped the group to focus on which things they would prefer to create. We all introduced ourselves and talked about our craft experiences and knowledge.
Magazines recommended: Sew Hip, Handmade living, Making, Simply Homemade
Green Crafts for children, Sew! Cath Kidston, Making Stuff For Kids, Sew it up, Lotta Prints, Printed Pattern
2) After the short time of gathering thoughts and ideas, it was time for demonstrations.
First demonstration Wet Felting Techniques.
Hand Printing Techniques onto fabric
At 4pm participants were asked to take all materials needed home with them to produce at least 10 items, to then bring back and sell at the craft fair on Friday!!
Hooray what a lovely, exciting day!
We hope to see you there?? There will be a free children's activity available.
