Thursday 20th December 2018:  Christmas Wreaths

We will quite happily get tangled up in willow, ivy, fir, tinsel, glitter and glue mixed together with beautiful hand painted baubles to hang on your front door or inside your home.  Can be traditional, crazy or absolutely beautiful; its up to you, please wear old clothes though!

Friday 21st December:  Baby Lanterns

Make some adorable little paper lanterns to place around your home at Christmas to make it festive and bright using mixed media and imagination.  Please wear old clothes to this one too as it will be messy.

Monday 24th December:  Christmas plates

Decorate a festive ceramic plate by painting with air drying paints.


All above workshops run 9.30am – midday in my studio in St Peters.  Numbers strictly limited due to space limitations in my studio so early booking is advised.  Each workshop costs £25.  Price includes all materials and a drink and biscuit half way through the session.  Please email Frances at for more details.
