Triple craft class whammy; embroidery, card making, nail art
Get your craft on this December with a full day of creative classes organised by Colour Box Studio.
The triple whammy day of craft takes place on 6 December in Prahran, and includes three very different classes offering new skills in embroidery, card designing and nail art.
Bats of Leisure Embroidery Circle from 10am to 12:30pm.
Bats of Leisure Embroidery Circle
The first class of the day will teach you a variety of embroidery and appliqué techniques. The designer duo behind this creative class; Bats of Leisure, are known to instill a contemporary twist to old craft techniques, and in this class, modern designs will be embroidered onto fabric.
The Bats of Leisure Embroidery Circle invites you to participate, no matter what level of experience you might be, to transform your ideas into art on a fabric canvas. There is no limit to your creativity, as you will learn how to update pre-loved garments into wearable art or make personalised gifts for your loved ones.
All materials will be provided including hoops, embroidery threads, embroidery floss, needles, pieces of fabric and wool, although you are welcome to bring along clothing, tea towels or other types of fabric from home.
Print Your Own Cards and Gift Tags from 1 - 3:30pm
Print Your Own Cards & Gift Tags
The second class of the day invites you to gear up for the festive season, and create your own screen-printed cards and gift tags in a hands-on workshop taught by Liz Doust of ambette.
Using stencils, you can create your own masterpiece, otherwise you can use pre-prepared designs to screen print a set of gift tags and cards to give to friends and family.
You don't need screen printing experience to complete this class, beginners are very welcome, although intermediates can also benefit from their design experience and focus on some printing time in a fun group environment. All equipment provided.
Nail Art with Critter Claws from 3:30 - 5:30pm
Nail Art with Critter Claws
In the final class of the day, Linh Nguyen of Critter Claws introduces a fun nail art workshop teaching you tips and tricks to create fancy nails at home.
By the end of this workshop, you will be able to paint leopard print, daisies, strawberries and slime designs on your own nails, and you will take away a free goody bag with the tools you need to paint nail art at home.
The 3-in-1 price of $180 includes all materials and participation in ALL 3 workshops (BYO Lunch). Alternatively, participation in individual workshops are priced at $65 per class.
