Self Care Hell Yeah With Show Your Bones
A drop-in colouring-in workshop, perfect for crafty novices and experts alike. Kalee of Show Your Bones will be designing some colouring-in sheets in her signature graphic geometric style that feature some handy hints on how to keep your mind happy and healthy.
designosaur charm bracelet workshop
Join designosaur at the Craft Party this year to make your very own charm bracelet. Using laser cut charms (mainly dinosaurs) you can create the bracelet of your dreams. We’ll show you how to open and close a jump ring to attach your charms, and then you can wear it straight from the table. We have a rainbow of colours to choose from so come and drop in and get creative. Jacques and Karli will be on hand if you get stuck on the fiddly bits!
Badge Making with Woah There Pickle
Vicky from Woah there Pickle will be bringing her trusty badge maker to this year’s Craft Party again along with bits and bobs to draw, doodle or collage your own flair on the night.
English Paper Piecing with The Pigeons Nest
Got piles of scrap fabric you have no idea what to do with? Are they leaking out of every cupboard and drawer and most of them are too small to actually be any use? Using very simple hand sewing techniques and some paper hexagons, you could transform them into a beautiful blanket and I will show you how!
This thrifty craft is one of my favourites and is great for those who like to have a hobby they can do on their commute, have stashed in their bag and can pick up and put down.
Fabulous Felted Butterflies with Karen Rao Felt Artist
The Wet Felting Experience follows the ancient art of rubbing wool with soap and water to create the ultra tactile and versatile material that is felt. Today we’ll be creating butterflies – or moths in this easy to follow workshop, ready to fly home with you with the additional use of pipe cleaners and hair clips!
Sew a Scrunchie with Mille Saisons
The scrunchie is coming to Brighton Etsy Craft Party! Learn to hand sew your very own scrunchie. Come and relax with some hand sewing- no sewing experience is needed as we will take you through each step. All materials are provided but feel free to bring your own fabric if you have a special piece you want to transform into a scrunchie. If you are bringing you own fabric, it would be helpful but not necessary to have it pre-cut to 44cm x 10cm.
Pom-ti Pom Pom with Yellow Bear Wares
Join a Pom-Pom frenzy and learn how to make multiple pom-poms at once, watermelon pom-poms or fork pom-poms, then you can turn these into a pompom crown, garland, keyring or experiment with your own ideas! If you have any specific colours of pompom that you’d like to make, please feel free to bring along your own yarns, we are quite well stocked up but no guarantee we’ll have what you want!
Papercut Pennat Banner Workshop with PorkChops PaperCuts
This workshop is the perfect opportuntiy to try your hand at papercutting. You will make a papercut pennant banner to hang on your wall or to give as a gift to your bae. We will go through some basic knife skills and safety precautions first with an opportunity to practice then swiftly move on to cutting out and assesmbling your own papercut pennant banner. This workshop is for absolute beginners or papercutting experts/ninjas. You can choose from some pre-exisiting designs or you can design your own if you’re feeling confident. Come and have a go.
Fairy Light Making Workshop with Joanna Corney
Enjoy an evening of crafting and create your very own mini lampshade fairy lights! This workshop is great for either a beginner or experienced crafter and will teach you how to apply the lampshade PVC to your fabric or paper and string the 10 lights together! By the end of the workshop you will get to go home with your own set of fairy lights and will have all the skills to create many more wonderful little lights! This is a great chance to use up your favourite remnants and scraps of fabric or paper, so bring any along that you fancy using. There will also be plenty of fabric there for you to choose from!
Crocheted Baubles with Pomilly
This drop in workshop will teach you all of the techniques you need to make these super fun baubles! Whether you have never picked up a crochet hook or you have crocheted a little before, there is something you can learn from this. We will be using the Amigurumi crochet technique (don’t worry it’s easier to do than it is to pronounce) which basically means you work in the round and can create 3D shapes, as opposed to a granny square which is flat. You will learn the basic stitch as well as how to increase and decrease. These baubles look great hung up around the house to brighten up a shelf, around a window frame, mirror or just about anywhere!
Hand Painted Wooden Bangles with Fleur de Carotte
Make something pretty for the summer which will give a boho touch to your outfit: a hand painted wooden bangle.
Explore your own creativity by imagining the pattern, play with colours and relax whilst painting.
The workshop will be run by Amandine from Fleur de Carotte for the third year now!
We can’t wait to welcome you all to our 2017 Craft Party! Don’t forget to join our Facebook event here.
More workshops to be announced soon too!
