Another rainy day…

We know about April showers, but SOME sunny days would be nice too!  Well, with all these rainy days and wet weekends we’re taking advantage of staying in and making things!!   So if you’re tempted to learn something new here is what’s coming up for May:

Vintage Charm – Jewellery Making

Learn basic jewellery making skills to construct you’re own unique necklace or bracelet.  Delve into our treasure trove of vintage finds and pick pearls, charms, cameos, brooches and more.  Great fun, and you’ll leave with a bespoke piece of jewellery.

Biscuit Icing that’s fit for a Queen

Thank you to all of you who came to our Easter biscuit icing workshop – we had biscuit bunnies, chicks and eggs galore. And if you love your biscuits as much as we do, you’ll be glad to know we have another biscuit icing workshop on Sunday  27th May in time for the Jubilee weekend. Whether you’re going to a street party or staying at home, we say fly the flag for the great British biscuit!

In the workshop our talented teacher from Biscuit Village in West London gives a demo and step by step guidence to the techniques of colouring, piping and flooding using Royal Icing (of course!) – plus lots of tricks of the trade for some impressive effects along the way.  After two hours you’ll be icing like a pro and will leave with your own beautifully iced Jubilee Biscuit Collection.
