My little crafting world....

Hi all
I'm a complete craft addict! I have a small business called Surrey Crafts teaching craft workshops from my studio in Esher, Surrey and at venues around the country. I teach mixed media, decorative painting, card making and papercrafts, jewellery making and creative embroidery classes.

Dotty Folk Art Roses
Thursday 24th August 2023
10am-1pm hosted by Seahorse Yarns and Crafts
A beautiful, fun class, suitable for all levels, including complete beginners, in a small class of lovely people. You will finish several beautiful projects during the morning; a card, matching envelope, a candle, hanging heart and, time permitting, a bookmark too, as well as practice pieces. Suitable for ages 8 years and upwards. I will show you how to add each of the simple layers of acrylic needed to create a wreath of beautiful dotty roses. I will teach you how to trace and transfer the variety of designs onto your project, ready to paint. This is such an easy, classic technique, you will want to dot everything around you that doesn't move.

March Mixed Media Classes 
Hello lovely people

I thought it would be nice to do 'An Introduction to Mixed Media' class. I will take you through lots of fun techniques. Stamping, stencilling, paints, inks, fabric and dies (etc). We will decorate a lovely craft notebook, make a matching card and a tag (which isn't in the photo) you can choose different words for your projects too.

This class will be UP TO 3 hours, so that we aren't rushing to decorate the 3 different items. 

The morning class will be starting at 9.30am and the afternoon class will start at 2pm but will go on longer if needed. The cost of the class will be £20.
