Concrete Tea Lightsfrom £32.00
Try out a modern take on craft with this great workshop. Pick a mould (or make your own!) cast and finish your own tealight holder from concrete.
Lucy will guide you through everything you need to know to make a fun tealight holder. There’s lots of support and guidance on how to design something that looks fab, so don’t panic if you have no crafty experience.
Lucy will help you choose your mould, and teach you the tricks to mixing, dyeing, pouring and de-casting your handiwork. Our concrete tealight holders will take an hour or two to set once poured but don’t worry! We will have ready made holders for you to practise your sanding and painting techniques on.
You will leave the workshop with your finished and unfinished tea light holder, plus instructions, sand paper and paint to complete your work.
This fabulously fun course is 3 hours long and will include hot and cold beverages and lots of lovely biscuits. Please arrive 10 minutes early to allow time to get a brew and get settled. We recommend you wear old clothes to this course as it is very messy. Gloves and face masks will be provided and MUST be worn, no exceptions. This course is suitable for 14 years old and above. Under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult. Directions and further information (if needed) will be emailed directly to you two weeks before the course date.
Dorset Button Makingfrom £22.00
Dorset Buttons originate all the way back to the 18th century. Before plastic was used in buttons, folks would use very thin slices from animal horn to create buttons for thick wool coats.
We don’t use the traditional animal horn method in this workshop, but we will show you how to make a lovely button from modern materials. Lisa has mastered the art of the Dorset button making and will show you how to create a basic crosswheel pattern that can lead to more elaborate designs if you wish to continue the craft. (We are warning you, it is VERY addictive!)
Lisa will provide everything you need for the workshop PLUS a lovely pack to take home with you that includes everything you need to make another button.
Our teaching methods are very relaxed and we are often complimented on our welcoming environment, so please don’t feel unsure about coming along on your own to one of our courses. We provide lots of tea, coffee and fun!

Needle Felted Beefrom £26.00
Felt is a textile that is produced by matting and pressing natural fibres together. This can be done using a wet or dry method. Needle felting is the dry method of creating 3D felt objects, or further embellishing flat pieces of work. Using special barbed needles and carded wool (from local sheep) you will learn the techniques behind creating a lovely bee brooch.
We will start by learning about the tools and equipment used in needle felting. We will have lots of samples of wool and fibre to help us learn about texture and form. Each attendee will make a small sample to practise using the needles before we start on our bee brooches. You will be shown how to felt different shapes and how to join those shapes together. We will add our bee wings using felt or acetate, little eye embellishments and finally add a little brooch back or an invisible thread to complete our bees.
You will leave the course having learnt a new craft skill. If you fancy, you can also buy a felt kit and wool directly from us to continue at home.
This course is suitable for complete beginners to needle felting or those wishing to brush up their skills. As needle felting involves pushing very sharp needles into felt we recommended attendees are 12 and over (under 16 must be accompanied by an adult).
This is a 3 hr course and will include hot and cold beverages and lots of lovely biscuits. Please arrive 10 minutes early to allow time to get a brew and get settled, you don’t need to bring anything other than your lovely self. Directions and further information (if needed) will be emailed directly to you two weeks before the course date.
