Changes are Afoot - New Shop Hours!
We are very excited to have listed the first of our new workshops! We have started with only a couple of events for now, but we have plenty more in the planning. We will be starting with beginners jewellery making classes, where you can learn how to design and assemble beaded jewellery, so initially we will stick to the basics, let's not jump ahead.
One class that we are particularly fond of is the family class - where adults and children can all join in and learn how to make a few simple pieces of jewellery. I have myself really struggled to find something creative that both my daughter and I could do together. I don't want to always wait for her to finish having fun, I want to join in the fun too! Yes, I do wish more providers would offer more options for mixed age options.
Admittedly our workshops had been on the pipeline for quite some time already and, honestly? the technology has defeated us, so we will list just a few workshops initially on our current website whilst we work on a brand new website to host all bookings and details about the classes we can offer.
To pave the way for the upcoming workshops we will be changing our opening hours at the shop - from 1st October the shop will open as follows:
Tuesday - Friday 10am - 4pm
Saturday 10:30am - 6pm
Sunday - Monday closed (but we continue to ship website orders on Monday)
This will allow us to plan more workshops and parties in the afternoon and evening, whilst we also work on our websites. We will be listing online lots of the items that are currently only in the shop. So if you are a local customer you will soon be able to pick your items from the comfort of your own home, and pick up your order from the shop at a time to suit you. If you are a website customer you will notice that the range of items we sell will increase.
At the point that all the website changes are ready, we hope then to offer lots more variety in our workshops: resin, polymer clay, silversmithing, silver clay, glass, pearl knotting... plus themed classes in other crafts too! who's up for a Pinterest party? Are you and your family fans of a particular book series perhaps?
You'll just have to wait and see.
