March Workshop -Papercraft Writer

Wednesday, 18 March 2015 § 0

For March's workshop we were joined by Buns & Roses' member Bev, from a Dog Called Dill, who taught the group how to make cards and fab home decor frames.

Everyone was given a box frame and scrabble tiles to create amazing pictures as well as all they needed to make some gorgeous cards.

Bev was a fab teacher who passed on some great hints and tips and as always the group went home with some great finished pieces.

Don't Worry Be(ad) Happy - February Meeting - Beading and General Meeting

Sunday, 8 March 2015 § 0

Due to popular demand our Roses in our members survey last year requested that they would very much like more of an opportunity for a good natter... so we listened and this was the first of our general meetings.

After the business part of the meeting had been discussed, it was over to some good crafting.

Buns & Roses added a good number of beads, wire and fixings to the craft stash and we all got our pliers out to make some interesting wearable craft.

We also welcomed a number of new faces into the Buns & Roses fold and initiated them with teaching them how to make a Suffolk Puff!

Hard Days Light - February Workshop - Conductive Thread Embroidery

§ 0

We all love a bit of embroidery at Buns & Roses and if it was possible founder member Hayley Mills-Styles has found it a way to make thread work even more exciting - with electricity!

Hayley talked us through the excitement of sewing with conductive thread and how to treat the individual components.  Having taught children how to sew with conductive thread Hayley was well equipped to deal with all sewing (and gluing abilities!).

We got stuck in with felt, sequins and colour changing LEDs!

The results were all very varied, but all really impressive!
