 The first craft workshop on Thursday June 18th 7.30pm to 9.00pm at Winton House in Petersfield High Street will focus on beginners' knitting. Learning to cast on, knit, pearl and cast off. 
There will be no class the following week as the room is booked by another group for every third Thursday.

The second craft workshop on Thursday July 2nd is on felt making. Specifically  'Making a Felt Flower'. Karen Head, who makes the amazing nuno felted scarves in Handmade Happiness will lead this class.

The third craft workshop on Thursday July 9th is on paper collage. Building a picture with paper you've painted and drawn on and torn pictures from magazines. Jenny Stacy will lead this class.

There will be no craft workshop the following week as it is the third Thursday of the month.

The fourth craft workshop on Thursday July 23rd is on Learning to Crochet. This class will be led by Pam Dew who makes the stunning quilts for Handmade Happiness and crochet bags.

Every Thursday night except the third Thursday in the month will focus on a different craft.  Future sessions may include cushion making, printing, embroidery, doll making, lampshade making basically whatever customers want to have a go at, as long as there is enough demand.  Towards Christmas we will make presents, make Christmas cards and Christmas gift wrap and tree decorations. I'm excited already!

To book for any particular class, or all of them contact Jenny at the shop or by email. The fee is £10 payable on the night to include basic materials and a glass of wine and tea or coffee.
