Sunbeam Wall Hanging
The new craft kit project is here! We're taking inspiration from the sun, its beams and uplifting energy, to create your own beautiful sunbeam wall hanging.
We're not supposed to have favourites (who could choose?!), but as my Granny would say, it's a wee stunner!
How To Make Time For Crafting
When I talk to people about crafting; what they get out of it, how often they craft, the thing I hear most often is that there’s never enough time for crafting.
Interestingly, I also often hear that people feel guilty taking time for themselves to craft. Now, we all know that’s crazy talk, but I think many of us feel that way too. So, we’ve brought together a little round of 10 ways to make time for crafting. Let’s dive in!
Folk Art-Inspired Concrete Dish
This month you can explore concrete casting - and folk art – to create this modern catch-all dish.
You'll construct your own mould from a plastic sheet (using our template), then pour in your 'snowcrete' (smooth white concrete) to cast your dish.
Mindful Inspiration for Spring
One week we're wearing t-shirts, the next woolly hats and scarfs - it must be the UK in Spring! We're not complaining though, we love this time of year, with the hints of summer to come.
It’s a season of change and new life, so it’s a perfect time to still and reflect, notice the space around you and enjoy the transformation in nature.
Woven Coasters Craft Kit
Painted Glass Window Craft Kit
This month we're taking inspiration from trips to Kew Gardens in London, thinking of glass domes, ferns and leaves.
You'll be exploring the art of glass painting, adorning your own glass window with a beautiful botanic-inspired design - perfect to hang on windowsill or brighten up your living room.
Himalayan Salt Soap Craft Kit
It's time to share the next craft kit - you’ll be learning how to make your own exfoliating salt soap!
You'll have an easy-to-use melt and pour base, then add your Himalayan pink rock salt and lavender fragrance oil (optional, if you're not a fan of scent) to create your soap scrub bar.
Broderie Anglaise Constellation Lamp Craft Kit
Create a constellation-inspired lampshade using the Broderie Anglaise embroidery method for this craft kit.
Broderie Anglaise is a beautiful embroidery technique you might recognise from the fabric of clothing, made popular in the 19th century, but we’re adapting it to this lamp!
