Captured Fairies

A great time was had by one and all at yesterdays workshop when 'Fimo Bev' came to visit the Craft Den studio again. We all look forward to Bev calling by. The Fimo workshops are getting more and more popular. We had two ladies, Denise and Sue travel from Liverpool to join us, thanks to Maddy Hill over on Mad Imaginations who had suggest it would be worth a visit for someone wanting to learn Fimo. Maddy is 'Fimo Bev's long lost friend from several years ago. We are hoping that Maddy will also visit the Craft Den studio in the not too distant future and if we are very lucky take a workshop if we are very, very lucky perhaps tutor a joint workshop with 'Fimo Bev'. Now that would be one to book in for, two of the most talented Fimo ladies in the country taking a workshop at Craft Den. WOW!! Watch this space girls!

In the morning it was captured fairies, which everyone enjoyed making. You can read about these fairies over on Chanelle's blog 'Angelwhispers' and find out if they have been captured yet!! LOL Apparently they are tricky little characters to catch!! Here are three of them that Chanelle will be tying to catch today if she hasn't already done so. Good luck with that Chanelle and let us know how you get on!!

'Fimo Bev' will be back at Craft Den for more Fimo classes on Sat 31st Jan 1pm - 3pm showing how to make two of the lovely Beatrix Potter card toppers, Sat 7th Feb 1:30pm - 3:30pm Floral card toppers and on the Sat 28th Feb another all day Fimo workshop - in the morning it will be Fimo, the items produced will then be cooked and used on a project in the afternoon. The full Craft Den timetable can be viewed here and some pictures of the Fimo Beatrix Potter characters can be viewed here.

We are also arranging more all day and weekend workshops in scrapbooking and altered art and lots, lots more, so watch this space for dates times and prices.

By the way have you seen on Maddy's blog about the Copic class for beginners? I don't know all the details, you would have to contact Maddy herself but I do know it would be well worth attending if you can. Why not hop over to her blog now and have a look at the three examples. I visited Maddy's craft group in Leeds last week with Chanelle from Angelwhispers for a taster session and we really enjoyed ourselves. Everyone made us more than welcome but we didn't get to meet Calvin mouse and I've heard he might be attending the Copics class! LOL
