Join Sue for a day making a beautiful Christmas fairy or angel.
This one day course is designed for complete relaxation in the mad run-up to Christmas. Escape to the studio and make your very own Christmas Fairy or Angel. Use yours as a tree topper or casually propped on your mantle piece sure to attract compliments.
We have a wide range of vintage and modern fabrics and embellishments for you to choose from so whatever your style you will be able to make a beautiful Christmas fairy to suit your décor. Sue will take you through the process of choosing a vintage doll and deciding what styles will suit your skill level and expertise. You will be given as much help and gentle encouragement as you need to realise your design and really make the most of your time with us.
We'll break for lunch before spending the afternoon hand stitching (no scary machines to get tangled up in) and embellishing your fairy.
Ideal for friends or family to work alongside one another, even if you have very different skill levels. Everyone can create something beautiful to be proud of - we promise.
The course includes welcome tea/coffee and Christmas treats, a delicious home made lunch of soup and bread and all materials so you don't need to bring anything at all with you. However, some folk do bring a special piece of ribbon, fabric, or old jewellery of little financial value but great sentimental value to be incorporated into their finished fairy, helping to make an instant heirloom piece. Babygros, wedding dresses, costume jewellery from relatives are all popular inclusions.
We are only offing this course twice this year to the public. However, if you can round up a group of more than four friends we can discuss putting on a bespoke session for your group, please send us an email and we will do our best to accommodate you.
