Plan ahead for Spring & Easter

Sandham workshop easter wreath

A new year opens up new opportunities to be inspired by Sandham's creative roots. Our Spring and Easter workshops offer the ideal opportunity to learn a new craft, make an Easter gift for you or as a special gift. We welcome back local artist Helen Mortimer whose workshops such as decoupage, papercraft and jewellery have been so popular we are repeating them in addition to a special children's Easter workshop too. We will for the first time be hosting an Easter wreath making workshop too - a very different take to the usual Easter egg theme.

Papercraft Workshops - Friday 23 March, 13 April  & 4 May 11am - 12.45pm

Learn about the artistic medium of  paper craft and create beautiful cards and three dimensional projects.   Working with Helen  learn about this varied artistic medium to create your own unique projects.  Paper is very versatile and can be  folded, cut, glued or layered. You can then employ other techniques from stamping to die cutting & embossing. During the session you will create two cards and a small three dimensional project, for example a small box.
