Workshops at Woodford Folk Festival


Wishing you all a safe and fun festive season and thank you all for supporting my little creative venture.

Just a reminder that I will be running workshops with Brisbane Brown Owls at Woodford Folk Festival! Workshops will include rubber stamp making, 17th century fabric brooches, basket weaving with fabric and macramé!

You can find all of the details for Woodford Folk Festival and the full program here.

Also check out the full line up of workshops in the visual arts/craft section here.

If you're planning on going let me know, I would love to see you there! You can also keep up with all the fun of Woodford on my instagram, Facebook page or Twitter.

Keep an eye on your in-boxes early in the new year for a fabulous line up of Art Bites workshops as part of Brisbane City Council's BrisAsia Festival that I will be producing as Brisbane Brown Owls. If you're not on my email list already sign up here

See you at Woodford or in 2014!

amigurumi for beginners

Last weekend I ran a little amigurumi meet up for Brisbane Brown Owls. It was great fun and a lot easier than I thought it would be.

If you'd like to have a go at it yourself I highly recommend Fresh Stitches Beginner's Guide to Amigurumi, it's a free pdf download and can be found here.

Once you've got your skills down there's also some great patterns on Craftsy and I'm sure Ravelry have some good ones too.

If you're in Brisbane early next year there will be some more fab amigurumi for beginners workshops happening, details will be announced soon and you can sign up to my email newsletter here to be the first to find out!

Happy hooking!
