Crafting can be an incredibly rewarding and therapeutic activity. It’s no wonder that many people are turning to crafts as a way to relax and de-stress. From needle felting to Indian block printing, there are so many different crafts you can try for your wellbeing. Whether it’s creating something beautiful or simply getting lost in the creative process, crafting has been proven to have positive effects on mental health.
Needle felting and Indian block printing are two popular crafts that you can try for your wellbeing.
Needle felting is a fun craft that involves using sharp needles to shape wool into 3D objects or sculptures, while Indian block printing is an ancient art form that involves creating intricate patterns using wooden blocks dipped in dye. Both of these crafts require patience and concentration, allowing you to get lost in the creative process and forget about all of your worries!
If you would like to try either of these crafts we have some beginners workshops in February & March that you may like to book onto….pop over to our workshop page to check the next date.
What a wonderful few weeks of weather we have had in the UK …was it to hot for you?
As I am very fair skinned I tend to stay in the shade a lot but do look forward to sitting in the garden of an evening and relaxing whilst listening to the birds serenading us.
I think a lot of people have found their garden to be a sanctuary over the last year and there has been a lot of decor introduced to make it an extension of the home. Have you spruced up the garden with new some lights or furniture?
A little bit of an Indian Summer
We have just added a new date for our very popular Indian Block Printing workshop and this month you will get the opportunity to make a couple of these tea light holders. Perfect for adding a subtle light to the evening.
As I look out of my window today there is some definite signs of spring on the way and it is time to come out of the winter hibernation and get crafty!.
Spring is a sign of renewal and with a few flowers appearing along the hedgerows we are all beginning to feel a little more joyous. With Mothers day and Spring just around the corner there are lots of reasons to shake of the cloudy skies and get crafting to bring some cheer into your home.
If you need some inspiration we have quite a few workshops lined up and with a focus on sustainability . A bunch of blooming flowers is always nice to receive but they will wilt ( don’t forget to put them in your compost bin) so how about attending our flowers rag rugging workshop and we will show you how to make beautiful flowers from upcycled fabric?
Another great versatile craft to try is our ever popular Indian Block printing workshop, you could print a tote bag or maybe some fresh crisp pillowcases or a cushion….or all of them!
Of course as we step into spring and start to venture out into the garden we will of course be looking at a range of bunting…sheep and apple trees anybody?
