This spring Ruthin Craft Centre is offering a bespoke digital craft workshop which you can easily follow and make at home, led by one of our talented makers Anne Kelly. Our digital workshop is designed to keep you connected with CRAFT and provide inspiration while we all stay at home.

The Workshop
During this one-day online course you will be working from your choice of house or place (building) that holds a special memory for you. We will start by using basic but effective techniques taken from her books. Anne will show you how to create a mixed media collage using items from your collections and charity shop finds.

Your piece will be embellished and richly decorated to create a special souvenir or gift. It can be added to a larger piece at a later date if desired. Sewing machines are helpful but not essential. It’s helpful if you choose colours that suit your house/building and an image of your house/building to work from before the course.

This workshop is via Zoom.
