If Sally could give each person who comes to her workshop one thing, it would be to go home excited about being creative; along with the skills to do some craft work.
Crafting in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere is relaxing and enjoyable; and in small group workshops, you can connect with a community of like-minded people and make new friends.
Connecting, or reconnecting, with your creativity helps relieve stress, gives you freedom of expression, makes you more resourceful, leads you towards authenticity and self-awareness, teaches you problem-solving, can save you money, and you can make thoughtful gifts for family and friends.
Using your hands to ‘make’ connects your mind, body, and spirit in activity which, when you are ‘in the zone’ where time seems to stand still and nothing else matters, is almost meditative.
Come on your own, with family members, or bring your friends. Some workshops are for adults and on some we can welcome teens – and in the school holidays please look out for craft activity sessions which are suitable for younger children too.
Sally has been a photographer and filmmaker for nearly two decades. She began crafting by lino cutting from her own photos in order to make hand printed cards and wall art, then she tried felting the images to make pictures, then mosaic designs… and, as she had already been teaching photography group workshops [by then for 8 years], in June 2018 she opened Craft Workshops to encourage people to start being creative, or to revive their crafting interest, and to join with like-minded crafters in learning, sharing skills, and encouraging one another with their creative skills.
Learn a new craft or update your skills in small, friendly group workshops with Sally who is patient, helpful [and occasionally amusing!- Based on feedback from workshop attendees], and meet new crafting buddies.
You may not think you have creative genes, but with support and encouragement you can enjoy finding your creativity. You will go home with new skills to be able to continue crafting with confidence.
Sally’s aim is to encourage people to start being creative, or to revive their crafting interest, and to join with like-minded crafters in learning, sharing tips and techniques, and to encourage one another with their creative skills.
She makes all her craft workshops and courses as accessible and supportive as possible to encourage participation by everyone who would like to take part. Many workshops are suitable for teens as well as adults, with specific child-friendly activities arranged during school holidays.
Sally is a Platinum and Gold Students Choice Award holder with Craft Courses (rated Excellent by students) and has the certificate to prove it…
