Paper Crafts

Day 1 - Rubber Stamp, Card and Ink Techniques 

Day One of this workshop is perfect for those wishing to learn how to create beautiful cards or for those who are looking to improve skills. Nicky will be starting the day teaching how to get the most out of Rubber stamps and which ink you would use for each project. During the day you will then learn different ink techniques including Heat Embossing, Resist Technique, Blending, masking and lots more. You will be making a selection of cards for all occasions and will be given a Technique Book with directions to take home with you, plus we will also be using Rubber Stamps on a Tote Bag and Candle.

 Day 2 - Paper Marbling and Paper Flowers

Nicky will teach the art of Marbling with both the traditional water float method and the fun Shaving Foam Marbling - messy but very good fun. Once dried we will then learn how to make Paper Roses with Hearts, Spiral Roses and leaves, and other Paper Flowers including Daisies. These can then be displayed on a Note book, Terracotta Pot and Wreath. With a wide selection of colours you will be able to match your home decor.

Day 3 - Chalk Paint and Napkin Decoupage

With the beautiful selection of napkins in our shops it’s a real shame only to use these once and throw away.  Nicky will teach how to use chalk paint with a distress and crackle glaze on a selection of surfaces, including a bottle, tiles for coasters and a wooden tray or box which we will then decorate with Napkins and she will teach a method of sealing the finished piece to protect. There will be a selection of napkins for you to choose from, together with a selection of chalk paint colours. Bottles, tiles and wooden box or tray will also be provided.  Once you have learnt this skill you will be able to recycle an old piece of furniture or old ornament at home.
