Etsy Boost Workshop

Oh hey there! It is all go in my studio at the minute after a full day yesterday drawing and painting for new designs.

Winter Florals Workshop

Another weekend, another workshop! I visited the Derbyshire Christmas Market at the roundhouse in Derby, where I also attended a Winter Florals workshop hosted by The Greenery. It was a great workshop in which we made twig stars and then secured little bunches of winter florals to the frame. The presenter was really knowledgable about the … More Winter Florals Workshop
