Make a Noticeboard

November 3 @ 10:00 - 13:00
The Cosy Cabin,
The Risby Barns, South Street, Risby, Suffolk IP28 6QU United Kingdom

This was a very successful workshop when we held it before. It is an ideal opportunity to learn how to make your very own noticeboard, which then gives you the skills to make your own at home. They make marvellous gifts too and can be made for all sorts of places; i.e. Kitchens, Bedrooms, Offices, the workplace, and it’s surprising how much you use one once it’s on the wall. I love mine! You can do the course and make your own bespoke noticeboard for less than you would pay to buy one! The tutor will supply all you need to make your noticeboard including the board, wadding, lining, pins etc (excluding the fabric and ribbon) for an additional fee of £15 which you will pay the tutor in cash on the day.

Back by popular demand. ‘Boxes with Bridget’ workshops were a huge success last Christmas, especially the Christmas Tree Shaped Box, which makes not only a great display over the Christmas Season, but also a great gift box too. If you don’t want it in a Christmas Theme, then it would look amazing in any themed fabric you were to pick. In addition to the workshop fee, Bridget will supply a kit on the day of the cardboard templates needed to make the tree shaped box. The kit is £7.50 in cash which to pay on the day direct to Bridget your tutor. You do not need a sewing machine for this workshop. It involves hand sewing and glue.
