Are you a crafting fanatic always looking for a new technique, art or even just a night out? I am. My poor mother has had to endure a household of complete and utter chaos because I am consisting moving from being obsessed over one form of art and then another. However, she is no angel herself, devouring herself into endless crafts and hobbies – even taking over the dining table to make countless items last Christmas.
I definitely know where I got this gene from. One of my favourite things to do with friends is to find workshops that offer an intro into a new form of art, craft or skill to peak our interests and enjoy doing something new.
So I thought I would share some of my top workshop picks for this summer:
Make your own dream catchers at The Shop, 08/11 at 6:30pm. These handmade beauties are said to protect children from nightmares, but are so trendy for people looking for that special boho element to complete a space.
Learn How to Henna: I am totally loving the Gladstone Hotel’s Get School’d line up of workshop series. However, my favourite out of the bunch has to be the Henna Workshop. Learn the history of henna, how to make and mix the henna, and even practice applying on 08/19 at 7pm. If you have a love of this traditional art and want to try something new this workshop is definitely for you. CLICK HERE Source
