I cannot tell you how excited I am (and weirdly a tad bit nervous!) about my first ever craft class that I’ve signed up to. There was no hesitation whatsoever – as soon as I received the newsletter in my inbox about the forthcoming ‘Craft It Yourself’ events I was onto their site in matter of seconds to hit ‘book now‘. I’m a huge fan of Clerkenwell’s Craft Central who hold some fabulous fairs and workshops that help promote and build the increasingly popular culture of craft and design. For this reason alone, classes are known to get booked up very quickly (which it did!!) and at £19.99 (inclusive of materials and complimentary wine!) these 2-hour workshops were a bargain too!
So of the three workshops, I opted for the Japanese Gocco Printmaking workshop…..I CANNOT WAIT eeeek!!! :) I shall obviously report back to you on how it all goes (aided with plenty of photos!) but in the meantime here are a few visual treats to give you an idea of what Gocco printing is all about: check out Printed Wonders – founded by Xtina Lamb who will be running this workshop! Lets hope my stuff turns out half as good as hers! Also here’s a video clip on how its done!
Roll on 29th of November! :D
