My name is Jacqueline. I started my craft classes and gift shop in 2016 with one simple aim – to pass on my love and knowledge of crafts in a relaxing, fun and inclusive way through a range of accessible workshops, craft kits, handmade gifts and craft supplies.
I truly believe there is a creative outlet for everyone . Once you find your ‘thing’ it will bring you many hours of joy and relaxation.
We live in such a fast paced society and finding a little time to craft and be creative will bring you lots of benefits. It’s great for your wellbeing and this is what I want to share with you.
Current Craft Classes
Crafting is a tactile and a very social activity and is recommended in times of stress.
Wobbly Pins creative craft workshops in Coalville, Leicestershire, give you the opportunity to try various craft forms. Tuition and all tools and materials are provided.
I have tried lots of crafts over the year and soon realised that I did not have to be an expert at everything. Some of my early attempts at knitting and crochet had their own unique charm!
I have crafted for many years. Sewing was on one of my favourite lessons at school. I still remember the joy of progressing to having thread in the bobbin to sew, as I had mastered a straight line on the paper template.
I have since progressed to quilts, making clothes and items for the gift shop, but overall it is the joy of sewing and making something unique that inspires me. Hopefully it will be the same for you too.
Future classes at Wobbly Pins
I love textile related crafts, painting and pyrography. For other crafts, I will invite some fabulous Leicestershire artisans to inspire you and share their knowledge. A few on the list are Glass, Calligraphy and Smocking.
We are always on the look out for new craft class ideas. Please get in touch and let us know if there is a craft workshop you would like us to host for you.
