Oh blimey, it’s 2013! Some of you have probably promised yourselves to be more creative, more thrifty and to do more with your lives. To help you achieve this we’ve teamed up with Crafty Pint (from the people behind Handmade in Tooting) for a bunch of monthly workshops – the first one is on the 7th Jan, click here for info and to book your spot.
7th Jan – Calendar Making
Make a collage for each month from Crafty Pint’s collection of vintage books and magazines, rubber stamps, embossing and ephemera. Using blank calendar templates, create a beautiful and personal journal for the year. Expect lots of cutting, sticking glitter and stamping! Choose your favourite colours, recipes, stories and slogans, add pictures, stamps, stickers and paint. Get messy and get organised for 2013!
