Workshops for the New Year

I have the following workshops planned for January and February:
  • Sunday 10th January 2010 - Metal Embossing III 2.00pm to 4.00pm. We will be putting the finishing touches to our metal, making up the book covers and constructing the book. £30.
  • Saturday 16th January 2010 - Wire Jewellery 10.30am to 12.30pm. Learn the basics of constructing a necklace using wire and beads. £30.
  • Friday 19th February 2010 - Silk Paper 10.30am to 12.30pm. We will use silk with other fibres and mixed media to make wonderful textured surfaces which can be used for stitching, vessels and even jewellery.
  • Friday 26th February 2010 - Tapestry Weaving with Joan Young. Using a simple frame, learn the basic techniques of this centuries old craft. £30.
Later in the year I will be holding some mixed media classes in conjunction with Sharne Gregory - I'm really looking forward to working with Sharne. More details will follow, but they will be held on Saturdays.

To book, just give me a ring on 01268 523780 (see New Year opening hours below) or drop me an email at denise.gannon@craftarena.co.uk

Cloth Paper Scissors


The latest issue of Cloth Paper Scissors has arrived, and it has some fascinating articles and projects. For a start, the cover calls to me - all my favourite colours!

There is an article on design by one of my favourite textile artists, Beryl Taylor, painting on paper, wood, canvas, creating a journal, encaustic collage, paper quilting using a colour wheel for inspiration, birds, faces, houses, sculpture and stitch - there's something for nearly everyone!
