About The Event

Friday 26th June 2020- Friday 21st August

9 weeks of crafty goodness! Absolutely no skills required, you will literally be stepped through each project with care and templates! 

What you get:

All materials delivered (except glue gun)

Qualified Teacher and experienced workshop facilitator

Access to private online group

New project each week

Week One: Paper Quilled Design

A popular and ancient artform, this paper technique involves rolling strips of paper into shapes to fill a pre-planned design. You can make something big and bold like a hot air balloon scene or keep it simple and sweet like a mini elephant with a balloon posy. A gorgeous statement and peaceful process.  

Week Two: Watermelon Felted Keyring

Choose from a watermelon template and create a super cute keyring. We will be using felt to cut peices and learning simple stitching to add features. You will recieve enough felt to craft the other one in your own time.

Week Three: Mini Wool Weaving

Learn how to make an easy loom from cardboard and string that will entertain you and everyone you know! Use different wool colourways to weave a decorative and unique artwork that will be something to be super proud of!

Week Four: Felt Flower Wreath

A fun and unique way to create a door wreath for any festive season. Using felt, we will show you how to create flowers in a range of designs. After wrapping the hoops, we will attach flowers, ready for hanging.

Week Five: Tassel and Watercolour Bunting

Tassels are probably the most fun thing to make in the world! We love how they decorate any space and what better to display them than on a garland with watercolour paper flags. This beautiful handmade decoration can be used to celebrate a special occasion or hang permanently in a bedroom or living space.

Week Six: Felt Cloud and Raindrops Hanging

Stitch your own simple cloud design and matching raindrops before stuffing and hanging them on a piece of dowel. A perfect introduction to hand stitching and working with felt.

Week Seven: Wool Woven Pots

Learn a super cool technique involving wool, wool roving and a hot glue gun. We will make tassels and build them around the base of a small ceramic pot that will liven up any space. Use for a cute little succulent or store craft supplies inside.

Week Eight: Mini Dreamcatcher

We couldn't be crafty without a sweet little dream catcher week. Using a 20cm ring, we will show you how to wrap coloured yarn into a decorative pattern before adorning with yarn, feathers and beads.

Week Nine: T-shirt Yarn Macrame pot hanger

A super simple intro to macrame using t-shirt yarn. This material comes in a range of colours and can be dressed up with beads  for something to suit your personal taste and decor.

Why do these workshops exist?

Here are Mumma Got Skills, we hope to show parents that meaningful learning toys and experiences are so much more fulfilling when made by you!  We also know what it's like to lose a sense of your identity as you busy yourself with the all consuming needs of your baby. We love our babies of course, but we also require the space to free our minds and busy our hands. That's why these workshops exist, to provide you with the chance to make something totally guilt free while your babies mingle. 

Did you know that you are helping another Mum with your ticket purchase?

As a Social Enterprise, we put 50% of our profits towards education and development of free and low cost workshops for parents at risk of postnatal anxiety and depression.
