Yesterday was a big day for The Studio , it was our first workshop .We've been building up for this for a while now and I have been busy liaising with Coopers Cafe-bar and Rachel from Bewitched by Stitch as well as corresponding with people attending the workshop. Making sure everything was organised and in place for our Rag Rug Wreath workshop . It was so exciting on Friday , Rachel myself and Lucy started getting the space ready for Saturday . Lucy and I wanted people to feel relaxed and comfy in the space as if they were sat at home creating . As you can see The Studio has started to take on a festive feel about it .
Every so often I would just pop in to see how the wreaths were coming on . It was really interesting to see how different the colour palates were and there were some yummy combinations of colours .
I was amazed how quickly the wreaths started to take shape , it was getting very exciting at this stage . People were eager to see other peoples but also to see their own near completion . There was quite a spur of activity as one lady got to the stage for attaching the rag rugged piece to the wire frame and then back it .
I would like to thank all of the ladies who attended our first workshop as you made it a very special day , there was such creativity going on in out little studio and it was fantastic to see . This is a bit of a dream of Lucy's and mine to offer creative days /workshops/experiences to those who would like to give it a try , we really want to develop this part of The Studio ( our heads are buzzing with ideas ) and it is a very exciting first step into creating our dream . Also a big thank you to the very talented and creative Rachel from Bewitched by Stitch who is running our next date for this workshop on the 30th of November ( only 2 places left ) . But there will me more dates coming in the new year with Rachel as well as ourselves . Also a big thank you to Suzanne who supplied outstanding coffee and excellent tea and nourished everyone with warm crumpets on arrival and homemade soup and panini's and salad at lunchtime . Then mid afternoon supplied an extra treat with a two of plates of tempting sweet goodies with our afternoon beverages , Suzanne you did spoil us .
Wow what a day to end the working week on and I'm looking forward to more .
Dates for your diaries : Lucy and I are planning two Open Studios before Christmas to coincide with Skipton's Medieval Christmas markets , these will be on Sunday 8th December & Sunday 15th December 12pm-4pm . More information to follow soon .
If anyone would like to send me an image of their finished wreath that would be great as I would like to start a photo board of peoples makes that could be displayed to inspire others .
Anyway it's been a busy week and the next one is just as busy so ta ta for now and thanks for popping by.
