And who better to teach us how to create a lovely delicate watercolour study of our favourite festive bird than the wonderful Jane Davies Watercolours?

Join SAS founder Ellie Green in the studio for a fun and cosy evening of print-making to produce beautiful hand-printed Christmas labels that will add a personal touch to your festive gifting.

You can either learn to cut a small lino stamp to print multiples of the same design, or get a little more experimental with your making- creating mono-prints from ferns, feathers or anything else that comes to hand.

You’ll come away with lots of ideas and a lovely selection of individually printed tags!

Book here to secure your spot. All materials are included in your workshop booking as is a glass of bubbly!

Winter Candle Making Workshop

Saturday 1st December / 14:00 to 16:00

Add a bit of hygge to your winter home with these gorgeous scented candles in lovely little vintage tea-cups!

Candle-making is a delightfully slow process with each step of the creation encouraging you to be patient and present. We’ll work with soy candle wax - it has a much slower burn time and is non-toxic.

Engage the senses by picking out scent combinations that suit your mood - using a combination of pre-made scents and essential oils to add a personal touch to your creations.

We have a lovely selection of vintage crockery for you to choose from and will have a bit of fun creating some hand-made christmas labels whilst your creation sets! Book here to secure your space!
